Working with A Doily Die

Hello friends!
Sometimes when you have a well-designed product, there's really not a lot that you need to do to make it SHINE. Take a look at this doily die from Waffle Flower...

How intricate and gorgeous is this?
I took an easy approach by creating a watercolor background and then I made the die cut.
miss you
After stamping the sentiment and polka dots, I added the white dotty details (with Pico Embellishers) and embellished the card.

End of the story.
Thanks for stopping by!
