Gingham Daisies

What's better than a basket of daisies?  Gingham daisies!!  As soon as I saw this inspiration picture of summertime colors for the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week, my mind went right to ginghams.


I already had the hot pink and orange ginghams, but not the turquoise. I remembered a site of printable ones.  They have 3 color families, with about 8 shades in each and 2 sizes of gingham in each shade.  Here it is, if there's anyone else out there who's batty about ginghams like me.


supplies: Hero Arts Cerulean layering paper, Core'dinations hot pink and orange card stock,  printed turquoise gingham, Making Memories Orange and Rasberry gingham dps, Hero Arts H3125 Heart Leaf Sketch, CL199 Sunny Smiles (basket), Papertrey tiny tags and stamp, Prismacolor spring green pencil for leaves and stems, hot pink ribbon, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, pearls.
