Gingham hearts......

Happy Tuesday to you all, I hope you are having a good day!
As you can see I've been having a play with another of the beautiful images which Vicki very kindly sent me. Thank you Vicki.
I've always loved gingham patterns & thought this image would go well. I wanted the card to be quite bold with its colours so chose to go with red, white & navy, colouring in to suit. Again, I've then clear embossed over to make the colours stand out more. The papers are various downloads & I've then used navy cs for contrast.
The buttons, I bought from a local shop last week. A bargin at 50p for 25 buttons!
I've actually used a needle & thread on this card & have the scars to prove it!..........lol, lets just say my fingers some how got in the way a few times.....ouch!!
To finish off I added a couple of gingham hearts.

Updated: Have just been asked where gingham pp's are from & found out, heres the link

then, on left side 'free pattern prints' where you will find ginghams in various colourways.

Many thanks for popping by & I hope to see you again soon.

Love the way you used the gingham papers. It's been a while since I used mine! Think I have to go home look for them and use them on some cards!
Thanks for sharing!

oooooo!!! really love this Kerry. The colours are so crips and fresh, the gingham papers, layout and your colouring are all so fab. Sounds like you are about as accident prone as me with a needle and thread, but it was definately worth the scars, absolutely gorgeous card. xx vicki xx
