ODBDSLC - Gingham

Hello, everyone! It's Saturday and time for the new challenge over at the ODBD blog... ODBDSLC61.  This time the team is challenging you to use gingham and/or plaid on your card.  

For my card I chose to use some yummy black and white gingham ribbon that I have from May Arts.  I paired it with an image and sentiment from the ODBD set, Friendship.  Using the 2nd largest die from the Spellbinders Labels Nine dies I diecut white cardstock and black cardstock.  The swirly butterfly image was stamped on the white diecut piece using grey ink and then the sentiment was overstamped using black ink.  A bit of distress ink was used on the edges.  The white diecut was then layered with the black diecut as shown.  Some clear rhinestones were added at the bottom.  I used some SU! designer paper called Night and Day for the top half of the card.  The diecuts were then adhered to the card base.  I tied the bow, adhered it and I was done. 

You don't need ODBD stamps to participate in the challenge.  However, if you want to be considered for the Shining the Light award you creation must use ODBD stamps.   To make things even more fun a random chosen person will win a $15.00 ODBD gift certificate!

Thanks for taking a peek....
