Here's the prize for this Challenge:


  1. Beautiful card and love the added strip of gingham, and lovely flower.

  2. Beautifully designed card Donna with such a pretty stamp. The technique you used is fabulous, but if I tried it I would mess it up for sure...anyhow a lovely card!!

  3. Look at all of the glorious gingham in the photo! Your card is beautiful! I love your gorgeous flower and the spotlight pretty. Your addition of gingham is the icing on the cake! Lovely card!

  4. Hi, Donna! What a fabulous way of incorporating the inspiration board, AND use a tag, AND flowers, AND the spotlight technique! WOW! I am especially enjoying the popped up spotlight portion. Glad I'm not the only one who sometimes takes photos of cards where I forgot to do a last minute tweaking, but honestly, I wouldn't have thought anything about it on your card had you not said anything. Still, it is nice to know I'm not alone. What really gets me is when I color an image, make the entire card, put it together, photograph it, and notice at the last minute that I missed coloring a part of the image! LOL Gotta love it. Hoping you are warming up and that your amazing bulb garden is beginning to greet you! hugs, de

  5. What a pretty card and all that wonderful gingham. My favorite!!! Great idea using the tag to create a pop out focal point. Truly stunning and one I'm going to have to try. Thanks for inspiring!!

  6. GORGEOUS!! Love the orange color (a color I rarely use but love it) and that technique is one I haven't done in years! You did a great job and have inspired me to 'give it a go again!' Beautiful use of gingham ... well done my friend! Well done!

  7. Again ... LOVE IT! Thanks so much for playing in our ‘One for the Ladies’ challenge at Dies R Us. Good Luck and please come back again soon!
