Gingham in Green

It's here! Shop, hop, and crop with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff starts today. The entire LSS shop at my Grafico is 50 % off!!! Be sure to head to Lindsay's blog to begin the official hop with lots of chances to win free stamp sets. I'll be back tomorrow to give you a chance to win a set from me!
But, I created a card for the color challenge over at the virtual crop room at MyGrafico where lots more celebrating is going on. Lindsay's issued a series of challenges over there and even has freebie which everyone can go over and grab today!
I saw this bedding advertisement in Country Sampler magazine that had polka dotted and gingham bedding in bright green and additional floral accessories in yellow and green....loved it! Since changing up my bedroom is financially out of the question, I decided to recreate the room on a card. I used the LSS Doodle Flowers digital stamp set for the sentiment and flower. I colored the flower with my copics and then paired the image up with some great papers from Paper Studio and My Mind's Eye.
I really love how fresh this color combination looks and I've got a friend with a birthday later this month who's sure to enjoy this one!
