Geraniums and Gingham

There is NOTHING I love more than using a gingham patterned paper… it just thoroughly makes me smile from ear to ear.  So when I was finished creating my beautiful Geraniums panel for my card last night, I just couldn’t resist using this gorgeous green gingham from some Graphic45 Christmas papers to complete the look I wanted.  The “Geraniums” are a newly released digital stamp set from Power Poppy with the same name.

My card today was designed using the latest Card Sketch from Splitcoaststampers.   It’s my week to share a sketch and this was it… SC497;

Now, if you have never worked with digital stamps... no worries!  I have actually created a step-by-step tutorial over at StampNation just for those people just beginning to dabble in this art.  I show you exactly how I created this very card front.  I hope you’ll check it out…
