365 Cards - #195 - Pretty Pattern

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge is all about gingham! "But you won't be surprised, I'm sure that this is not a simple challenge. Create a piece of clothing with gingham as the pattern. You can stamp it, print a digital image, hand-draw it, or whatever you wish to do." In Pam's own words! I again did not have any stamps or digi images with a piece of clothing in gingham so I went a searchin' on the net for a gingham dress. I finally found a vintage pattern that I thought I would be able to paper piece it was already in colour which shows a bit as the "gingham" is a bit dull for being over printed in colour on it. The gingham is from my brand spanking new DCWV Garden Party paper stack which I got today as well as the Latte stack. . . .nice!!! The pleated ribbon is also new today which I absolutely love.

So this is my card for the challenge. I hope you like it. Below is my brand spanking new Round-It-All from Zutter which I have had on layby for ages along with the tote bag for my Bind-It-All, I finally had enough money to get the layby out today and can I say I am in love with my Round-It-All!!! Makes doing corners in chipboard, tin, leather etc a breeze. I had to take a pic of me holding it of course.

Okay that is it for me today people.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Great card, Michelle! Love that ribbon, too. :D

What is it about those vintage women that they're holding handkerchiefs? The image I used for my card was holding one, too. Bizarre.

Love your card! The gingham pattern you used is pretty. I like the ribbon too. It looks like a garter. Love your new toy too! Isn't it nice to get new toys?
