Dream Valley #194 Use a Doily and a Brad

Hi, guys! Well, apparently today is 'Blue Monday' which is the most depressing day of the year, according to an advert put out by a travel company back in 2005! I wonder why they chose gloomy (in the Northern Hemisphere) January to advertise holidays in sunnier climes?!

However, there's a simpler solution to cheer everyone up - a new challenge at Dream Valley!We have a really unusual theme: Use a Doily and a Brad.

Our sponsor is the gorgeous All Dressed Up Stamps. Wendy very kindly sent the DT a couple of very pretty images touse - check out what my teamies have done on the Challenge blog! Unfortunately my printer gave up the ghost over New Year just at the time I needed toprint my image out! Fortunately I had another sweet ADU girlie already printed out. Phew!

This cutie is Flyaway Butterfly. I used papers from a very old pad which came with a magazine, and cut the edge of the pink piece with a Spellbinders Scalloped Borders One die.

I used the Doily to decorate the top corners, and the yellow Brad is fastened to the girl's gorgeous flowery headband. The brad is flower-shaped, which I thought appropriate!  The sentiment is die-cut with a Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border die and trimmed to fit.

Thanks for looking, and have a great week!
