Shopping Our Stash Challenge #209 - Country Gingham

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
This week, at Shopping Our Stash, we want you to
 show us your GINGHAM STYLE!  
Create the project of your choice, we only ask that you follow two simple rules:

1.  Use items from your stash and let us know what those items are.
2.   Use checkers/checks or squares. 

Here is my "Country" Gingham Style
Last year, I took advantage of Crafty Steals "Bundle Sales."  One of my favorite 6"x6" pads was WRMK's Country Livin', I think the designs are super cute.  I have been hoarding this pad, but this challenge was the perfect vehicle for these fabulous papers. The sentiment image is from one of the cut-apart pages which have a lot of ephemera.  (If you like these designs, Crafty Steals has the pads for $2.99.) 

  I give most of my cards to my SIL for her church,  so I usually leave the inside blank.
Although, I think, I may keep this one for my stash.  Selfish me!

Supply List:
We R Memory Keepers -  Country Livin' 6"x6" Paper Pad (36 Sheets- 2 of each design)
Neenah Linen Card Stock - Natural White
Burnt Sienna Cardstock - From my stash (I think I ordered it from Cards and Pockets)
Gingham Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Distress Inks: Vintage Photo, Bundled Sage
Pearls - Want2Scrap
Clock Charm - Want2Scrap
Misc.: Double-sided foam tape, Elmer's School Glue, Distressing Tool

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see an entry from you in the challenge!
