I have always loved gingham.  So when this week’s challenge over at the Mod Squad was “Going Gingham”, playing along was at the top of the list!  And with the oh so soft yellow patterned paper, this card is also playing along in the challenge at Simon Says Monday to use Yellow.

A little Washi Tape and a row of delicate embossing finish the card.

This card is also playing along in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge “Clean and Simple” and the Seize the Birthday Challenge.

Happy Crafting!

  8. I’ve always loved gingham too, and this yellow is so perky & happy. Love that green hexagon pattern behind it too. I’m not good at combining patterns, so I’m impressed at how well they go together. And of course, you _know_ I love the bird on the stems. This is an especially delightful card. Bound to let whomever receives it, know how much you care. TFS & Hugs
