Softly, softly with Pink and White Gingham

Hello my friends and welcome to my blog today.
This easel card is my April Project for
Maja Design
Hello everyone, today I am showcasing another easel card with stacked elements .
One of my fave patterns is gingham check .. especially pink and white … to me there is something very soft and feminine about pink and white gingham.
The soft grey ribbon completes the card with the perfect contrast . 
Pink and White Gingham 
 I have beautiful memories of some gingham dresses our Auntie made my twin sister and me 
when we were  about 5 years old .
we had 2 gingham dresses, one was blue and white and the other one was pink and white 
with a big bow tied at the back . 
We loved to twirl and dance to music, such fun memories to treasure .

 look at those layers!!!!
Sometimes I get a little carried away with my layering and have to remove some of the dies. 
I have such fun watching the height grow and grow !!!
But I have to learn when to stop !! LOL 

the inside of the card is lined with the pink and white gingham
 and I added a delicate piece of chipboard to hold the easel section of the card in place.
