More tissue paper fun with Top Dog Dies

So, how was your weekend?  Mine was good.  We went for a walk around the Mercer Slough for the first time.  It is a great wetland and wildlife area.  There is also an adjacent blueberry farm (YUM), we'll be going there in late summer to pick. :)

Today I want to share another card that I made with tissue paper and Top Dog Die Bella Doily.  I cut the doily from bright purple tissue.  I mod-podged the down.  What I like about this is that you can still see the bright color of the tissue but you can see a bit of the black through it, the transparency is apparent.  I stamped the floral form ME on a lighter shade of purple and embossed it white.  The sentiment is also from ME.  I added some bright green bits from the Leafy Flourishes Die to add more greenery.  Finally, I smudged around for the chalkboard look and finished of with some bright Orchid sequins from Neat & Tangled.
