Gingham and Dots

.......2 of my favorite things; TSTR calls them "classic patterns", and I so agree.  So I just had to play at the Shabby Tea Room this week, just getting in under the wire.  Here is the photo inspiration: 


As I was reading my blogger Dashboard this morning, I found this lovely vintage card at The Graphics Fairy, and used that as my focal point.















supplies: cream card base, tone-on-tone fabric from my friend Yvonne, green gingham: October Afternoon "Fly a Kite: Ice Cream", pink dot: BoBunny "Blush Dot", adhesive red gingham ribbon, vintage card from The Graphics Fairy, stamped with Papertrey Ink "Embellishments" sentiment in versafine Vintage Sepia, bit of paper lace, ecru lace from Carol, seam binding dyed with antique linen distress ink, red button
