A new way to make cards from SCS.

This card is for You're so Plaid (You probably think this card is about you) at 365 cards Day 80.
I have plaid ribbon, plaid dress and some plaid paper.
The sketch was from Unscripted Sketches.
I bought some paper doilies today when I bought the stuff for my 10,000 hit candy.  The restaurant we frequent for breakfast serves coffee on these little paper doilies and I always thought they would be fun on cards.  They have cake sized ones too.  I found them in the candy/cake decorating aisle.
Sew What
This is for a new to me Challenge blog called Midnight Madness
If you win in their challenge a $100.00 Stampin' Up! prize is up for grabs.
This card is made with Core'dinations and Basic Grey paper.
The image is Lisa's Altered Art
The ribbon is uptown from DCWV
Here is a card I learned from Split Coast Stampers
It is for Created by hand and the theme is Green and Pink.
The next two pictures show the unique folding.
I actually got the link to the idea from blog hopping today from someone who commented on my blog and I can't find you now (I accidently misplaced your name on a scrap of paper).  So, if it was your blog I commented on that I was going to make one of these, please leave a new comment and I will edit this post to include your name and a link to your blog.  Thank you by the way, what a fun card.
