 I used the Background Builders: Knit and Damask Doilies for my card tonight, but never fear!  I am sure that I will use Onsie Two-sie & its matching dies before the week's end!! :)  I stuck with a very clean and simple design for my card tonight....almost a one layer card.  Here is what I created:
"Congratulations on your Engagement" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (smooth white)
Patterned Paper: My Little Shoebox (Heartfelt: Cheryl)
Stamps/Die: WPlus9 (Background Builders: Knit & Damask Doilies sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: lime, antique pewter & Donna Salazar Mixed Media: chiffon) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Flowers: Recollections
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from smooth white cardstock, then round the upper right corner.  Ink the background stamp with three different ink colors, then stamp along the left side of the card.  Stamp the smaller borders in an opposite color to the right of the first stamped image.  Stamp the doily to the bottom of the stamped border.  Diecut the banner from pink ledger paper, then stamp the sentiment to it.  Adhere the sentiment banner coming from the doily middle, then accent with three paper flowers.  Add three matching jewels underneath the stamped sentiment banner to finish.

Card Challenges Used:
-Color Throwdown #185- lucky limemade, basic grey, regal rose, black
