Sweet Stampin' - gingham

I'm back with my second post for today, my DT card for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' which is 'gingham' - couldn't get more perfect for me really, I love anything gingham!  We're sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts so there'll be a fab prize for our lucky winner :o)




Apologies if I've been a bit boring using these papers over the last week, I wanted to try and use up the ones I'd printed rather than using them for one card and then shoving them in my box of scraps and forgetting about them!  Only a few scraps of them left now... unless I print some more lol!

The image is a very cute Pollycraft one that I won from the lovely Faye, coloured with flexmarkers, promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  I put the wording in place (using a simple text box in Word) before I printed it.  The papers are Pink Petticoat, printed onto linen card, with textured kraft card from Stampin' Up. The tabs were cut using the Stampin' Up word window punch, and the buttons are Papermania.  I decorated the inside too, but as usual forgot to take a pic of that!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Wonder what will be happening with The X Factor now that Frankie has left (hurrah!), are they going to bring back one of the acts that got voted off?  Can't wait - gotta love trashy Saturday night telly lol :o)
