Sunshine & Flowers

Cath has set a challenge for us at Moxie Fab World, to use gingham.  She has identified this as a trend in the newest Paper Crafts publication Card Creations, volume 10.  Hearing this made me very happy, as I am a long-time fan of anything gingham.  I envisioned yellow gingham and daisies, so here is my first submission to the challenge:

MFW Gingham

supplies: Hero Arts Poppy layerimg paper as card base, October Afternoon Sidewalks yellow gingham dp, white cardstock, BoBunny green double dot, Hero Arts E4147 Sunshine and Flowers, VersaFine onyx black ink, Papertrey Ink Bloom Builders #3 die, PoppyStamps Meadow Leaf die, Nesties Labels One die, buttons, twine
