Basic Grey Challenge-Gingham

I have been trying to catch up with challenges...my goal is to be ahead of the game by being able to complete challenges shortly after they are posted and not be posting just before the deadlines. Easier to say than to do!
This project is for Basic Grey Challenge to use some Gingham on your creations and to include at least one item from Basic Grey on your creations if you wish to be in with a chance of winning the prize - $25 Credit. This closes tomorrow so must hurry!  I used a sketch challenge from Annabelle Stamps shown below which actually is open for another week. Annabelle has some great new stamps released this week.

Did the stair steps in layout with gingham ribbon. Added some distress ink at edges of mat and edges of stamped sentiment.

Stamp: Creative Clear Stamps "Make A Wish"
Inks: Memento Black
         Tim Holtz "Tea Dye"
Papers: Basic Grey "Cappella" Matstack -
            2 Patterned Papers
CS:  "Oyster Pearl" unknown
         Black Scrap
Pearls: Kaisercraft
Ribbon: American Crafts
Nesties: Oval and Scallop Oval Dies

Got to hurry and post!
Theresa
