God Made You Special

Happy Tuesday!
I'm back again with our new Tuesday Throwdown challenge!  This week our challenge is Gingham!  Now...honestly...I wasn't real sure what gingham was...had to look that one up.  Turns out it was so simple!  Then the problem arose that I didn't really have a wide selection of gingham (or plaid/stripped style) paper...my only real option was red.  So I had to work with that.
So here is what resulted:
Not too bad :)  I think it turned out more Christmas themed that what I really wanted it to be...the green ribbon I think is the cause of that...but it still is sweet :)

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Sweet n Sassy stamps!  I was fortunate enough to have just won a bunch of their wonderful stamps from Seems A Little Sketchy so I used one of my new images for this card.  It's called One of a Kind and is so adorable!  The birdie in the middle was suppose to be more pink than red so that he was a bit different than the other two...but it's hard to tell the difference.

I embossed the small panel under the image with one of my cuttlebug borders, and then trimmed around it so it has that scalloped edge.
The sentiment is also from that stamp set and I used my scallop scissors around the edge.

I do hope you will stop by and join in our challenge this week!  The prize is definitely worth it!

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Emily, that's such a wonderful color combo! What a fun image. I love the green ribbon with the red gingham checks. I think it looks summery -- like a picnic, and not at all Christmasy. :-D

  2. Emily your card is beautiful!! I love the red gingham and the sweet image, and what a lovely sentiment to go with it :)
