Double D Challenge - Summer Gingham

A quick note before you read this post.  Most of you are aware that Feedburner went away on July 1.  I decided last minute, to jump on the Follow it email.  So if you still want to get a notice that I have posted, just sign up on Follow it on the right. 

Hello Crafty Friends! It is time for another fun challenge at Double D and the challenge is...
Summer Gingham! 
Diane is our host and just look at the inspiration that she has for us on this board. 
Gingham just makes me think of an old-fashioned summer. 

Here is the card that I did for this challenge. 

The supplies that I used are:  The Greetery Balloon Bouquet stamp and die. MFT Gingham 
Galore 6 x 6 paper.  I cut a frame from the white cardstock and place the gingham behind it. 'Then the balloon in vellum over the top. It was pretty easy. 

Here is the Prize for a random winner.
