Gingham Posy

Here's another card for Cath's Gingham challenge at Moxie Fab World.  Recently Barb shared her Amuse ginghams with me and they are perfect for paper-piecing, since they are so tiny.  I just received this Hero Arts Classic set of stamps called Peeking Posies, and stamped one of the flowers in the set on 4 colors of the ginghams, paper-pieced the flower and stem, then surrounded the panel with a simple sentiment on all sides.


supplies: white cardstock, Amuse gingham dps, Hero Arts E3755 Single Blossom II from LL072 Peeking Posies, CL307 SparkleClear Mini Messages, VersaFine onyx black ink, light pink gems

Oh, my - this card is so YOU, Lin! I just ordered this set and can't wait to use it, even tho I am not really a flower gal. This is just so home-spun and adorable with all the soft colors. It reminds me of a quilt, too.
