Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies and I create a card for a friend

I've been a little bit quiet again, but it's not for lack of creating, I assure you! I actually got my sewing machine out last night (replaced the needle) and sat down and did some sewing. It is the first time since I was in high school I've sewn anything other than paper! But, before I did that, I made a card. I've been longing to get back into my clean and simple cards, lately everything I make has had lots of layers, and stuff on it..... this one has big open white space... *sigh* "I'm home!"
It is a Very Vanilla card base, layered with Pink Pirouette and another piece of Very Vanilla, which has been stamped with the doilies from Delicate Doilies in Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Crumbcake. I then stamped the sentiment from Hello You in Crumbcajke and added three little pearls. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the sketch from Less is More, which was a super fun one, and one I will use again, I'm sure.... Next up is the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, Winter Blossoms, which inspired me with the colours and the shapes and overlapping flowers, finally the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge
