I've been working all day on organizing my stamping area. I FINALLY decided that I deserved a little break to stamp a card! I used the sketch from yesterday's sketch challenge and I still had the pack of paper out from making some plaques yesterday so I found this gingham look dp to meet today's Ways to Use it Challenge. I cut 2 strips from the same paper pack for the horizontal elements. I had the oval already cut so I cut a smaller oval in Very Vanilla. I wish they'd been one size bigger as the sentiment was tough to place and I wish there was just a bit more to the oval-could have put one more mat behind I guess. I stamped in Versafine Onyx, embossed in black ep and colored with markers (Poppy Parade, Real Red, Garden Green) then sponged with Baja Breeze and Island Indigo. I added some red gel pen to my sentiment which was stamped in Real Red. I added a red gingham bow. On the inside of the card I added another gingham strip over the Vanilla and added a Tasteful Trims die cut scallop in Real Red which is also my base color.
