I had a doily and embossing thing going today. I have a ton of paper doilies I bought cheap from eBay and need to use them before I can justify getting the PTI Parisian doily die. I wasn't sure if I would actually use it, but I do like the layer these doilies have given my cards today.
My first one is for A Passion For Papertrey's sketch challenge, Papertake Weekly Anything Goes Challenge with an optional extra of using a circle and for My Time Made Easy's Pretty Palette #7 to use pink, light grey and burgundy. This was a gorgeous colour combo!

Accessories: Scarlet Jewel Felt, Hibiscus Burst Felt, Beautiful Blooms Dies #3, Doily Details Die, 1 3/4" Circle Die all from PTI, Ribbon from American Crafts, Buttons from Papermania, Doily from eBay
My next doily card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #1 for May and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #70 to use Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Rich Razzleberry and Pacific Point.

My next card doesn't use a doily, but I added a bit of dimension using an embossing folder. This is for Mojo Monday's Challenge #189 for the sketch and Color Throwdown's Challenge #140 to use Early Espresso, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Kraft - what a gorgeous combo this is! I decided to emboss my DSP with an ink folder and accidentally embossed the wrong side of my Baja Breeze DSP. I actually much preferred this side and the pattern just subtly shows through the ink.

And my final card for today is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #67 for the sketch and for Paper Pal Arts Challenge #92 to use Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade. I loved the embedded embossing technique I did on this card here a couple of weeks ago so did it again and love how it came out!
