Polkadots and Gingham!



I absolutely love the challenge given to us by Cindy Haffner to make a card using polkadots and gingham ribbon! Two of my favorite items for cards!

I used SU's Spring dp in the polkadots to cover my scalloped piece of chipboard and then sponged the edges in Close to Cocoa. I tied the gingham ribbon on the one side and then I taped another piece of the ribbon underneath the large scallop and behind the dp to make it appear as though it is one piece of ribbon being used.

I also used SU's Spring dp and my 3/4" square punch for the corners by cutting them in half and then sponging them in Close to Cocoa.

I stamped Enjoy Your Day from SU's Riveting set, covered the center with a brown button, and inserted two pink brads on each side of the button.
