Doily challenge, and many more

Our challenge this week at Cheery Lynn is to use doilies!!  I took this challenge very seriously, I started by cutting the French Pastry doily and using the Canadian Kaleidoscope and cutting it apart to make the oval on the top and bottom behind the French Pastry.  I then cut a standard circle from Cheery Lynn, laid it over the ribbon and stamped this pretty circle with a butterfly in the center from Botanical butterflies from  Classy Cards I cut an Exotic butterfly medium #2 and #3.    The butterfly #3 fit perfectly over the butterfly on the image. I added some gems to finish the butterflies.  The corners are the inside doily die that is part of the Polynesian Sails Oval and I cut it apart to make the corners.  The Fanciful flourish frames the doily and I added some prima flowers and a pearl stick pin.  Have you seen the beautiful flower dies from Cheery Lynn, they are next on my wish list, you can make gorgeous matching flowers with these dies!! Check them out!
I will be adding this to the following challenges
