A Cameo Appearance

I have been seeing cameos everywhere lately, so our Queen Bee herself, Mizz Betty, decided we would have a cameo & silhouette challenge this week at Betty Bee's Buzz. I found this lovely cameo by Blue Moon at Michael's. I knew this had to adorn an elegant card. My inspiration for the sketch came from two different cards in the Jan./Feb. 2011 issue of Paper Crafts magazine (pp.25 & 73); one of these is also at Moxie Fab World (Kim Kesti's card). I created my project for the The Appearance of Cameos Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

The white doily is by Martha Stewart and sent to me by the uber-talented Kay of Robin Egg Ribbon. (Thank you, Kay!) I have wanted to use these and this was the perfect opportunity, don't you think? Look how fabulously Kay used a doily here.

Other supplies:
black linen card stock; Bazzill card stock (gold folded & cameo oval layer); white card stock, stamped sentiment, and black lace (SU!); gold ribbon (stash); Spellbinder's Nestibilities ovals.

My husband bought me a beautiful cameo pin when we visited Italy, many years ago. Your card brings back the beautiful memories of our trip. Good job!

OMG--I was reading Paper Crafts with a friend of mine and we both commented on the Cameo card. You did it justice, great job!

how pretty!! I love that the white scalloped oval picks up the white in the cameo and then it's echoed again in the doily! great job :)
