Smile! I've got Gingham!

I'll be honest, I'm guilty of considering ginghams to be for folksy, country styles or baby styles. There. I said it. Now..I fully intend to break out of that! HA! Gingham is FUN! I discovered this by playing along with the Gingham Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! Cath is pretty much just inspiring like that. Just say'n.

Gingham! It's not just for babies anymore! YAY! I had so much fun creating this 'Smile!' card! The stamps are from the Unity Frames in the House set! I love these stamps!!! I filled them with papers from LilyBee (beige, green) and My Mind's Eye (pink) and used just a bit of washi tape from Target under the sentiment! FUN!!! The embossing folder is a Cuttlebug folder from Provo Craft and the twine is straight from The Twinery!

I also decided to give this one some dimension to go with that fabulous texture by mounting the embossed panel and the frames all with foam tape! *LOVE!* Seriously, though, you guys...this is one of those cards that I had spinning in my head for a few days...it evolved through a few different design ideas and then when I finally saw it in real live paper...I was in love! HA! I love it when that happens!!!

Thanks for visiting!!! Don't forget to leave your comments and don't forget to check out the Shabby Apple giveaway! You will feel AMAZING in this dress if you win!!! Somebody's gotta win, so why can't it be YOU?
