Here is my card for the challenge:
 
 


This is probably one of the hardest cards I've ever done!!! I love my pattern paper and I'm not much of a stamper.. This was my second attempt too, I threw away the first one and didn't love it. (I still don't know if I love this one, but it's better).
I used some ink on the sides, then added some mist once I had stamped.. then misted the doily and added some stitching to it.
