Simon Says Stamp DT - Check it out!

Me again!! phew! busy day today! This week at Simon Says Stamp our theme is check it out!! So get out all those checks, gingham and plaids!! I went mad and used gingham paper AND ribbon LOL - check me out!! (sorry couldn't resist LOL) .
The paper is by Magnolia and is available at Simon Says Stamp, as is the image, buttons and flowers on my card today (well they do have just about everything LOL!!). I have followed the fab sketch at Truly Scrumptious for my card although I've swapped the rectangle image for a circle (hope that is OK, understand if it isn't!).

My image is by Mo Manning from Stampavie, called The End of Summer. Isn't it a gorgeous image? Love the laid back dreamy feeling it gives just looking at it! I've coloured her with copics and simply distressed the edge of the image with my Tim Holtz paper distressing tool and did the same again on the red and white layers I've used around the image.

I added three strips of lace from my stash for the elements of the sketch and then went to town on the flowers! The image just screams summer meadow to me so I had to make one for her to be lying in!! All the flowers are by Prima and I've sprayed them with glimmer mist although it doesn't seem to be showing in the bright sunlight I took the photos in! The buttons are by Basic Grey and the ribbon is by Offray from my stash.

The ticket is of course from Tim Holtz, also available at Simon Says Stamp!!
