Double D Challenges - Gingham

Hey, Crafty Makers!
Here is a quick card I made for the Gingham theme over at 
Double D Challenges.   I am using one of my unbranded dies and I love the way this project turned out.  Nothing fancy but I was able to reduce my  6"x6" paper stack by two pieces.  I am working on a tag to enter as well.  Two projects only two sheets of paper.
I am on a roll!  Hopefully, in April, I will create projects that will increase my confidence in layering fancy intricate dies. 
Rustic Love
 I am a great lover of Kraft card.  I think it goes so well with almost any color and is particularly effective if you are going for the 'rustic' country look.  I usually save my gingham paper for paper piecing.  I am glad that I stepped out of that particular little box and tried something different.
My original intention was to leave the white hearts blank but I needed to pull more of the Kraft card into the design so I added the Love sentiment and switched my tag from white to Kraft and added the twine bow.  I plan to make a second card using the gingham frame.  That should be fun.
Stuff I used:
Papers: Kraft Cardstock 
Patterned Papers:  American Crafts "Marine"
Stamp:  Hampton Arts "Just For You" - Wood mounted
Dies: Strip Alphabet Die - Tim Holtz™ Alterations "Alphabetical"
