Pretty gingham .....

When I made this card as a Guest DT for this weeks Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stanglar challenge 'Gingham' I faffed about so much choosing papers, accessories and so on that it was only when I was clearing up the scraps that I discovered I'd missed off a whole layer of gingham paper that I had spent ages distressing with my thumb nail and some distress inks!  durrrrrr

The image was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks.  I used cream picot edge lace, 25mm pink rustic gingham, white pearl and lavender round head pins,  lavender self adhesive pearls and stardust stickles all from here.  The tag, swirl and flower are all cut with Magnolia dies.

Ribbon Girl are sponsoring the Just Magnolia challenge this week with a prize of our mini ribbon kits - there are some fabulous creations by the Design Team - why not pop over and take a look, you've got  a whole week to get your card in!
See you soon, Mary G x
