Hello everyone,

Once again today's card reminds me of well-washed and worn cotton clothing that feels so awesome during the dog days of summer. This is a three-card challenge. The Shabby Tea Room provided a wonderful photo inspiration and the colours used in this card. Today's Die Cut Dreams challenge was to incorporate gingham and Mojo Monday provided a really neat sketch.

The background paper is DCWV Textured Pastel cardstock. The gingham layer is of unknown origin from the paper stash. The next layers are Stampin' Up Kraft and Whisper White stamped with Wow Flowers in VersaMark. The sentiment is Warm Words. The cording is hemp twine of unknown origin. The embellishment is from Multicrafts.

I really love it when multiple challenges blend so seamlessly into a single card. This has to be one of my favourite cards of late. I like that it is soft and worn and really quite simple given the sketch could have easily been over-the-top if I'd been so inclined.

Please enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
