you can choose any theme for the card BUT it must incorporate 'Checks', whether it be gingham paper or ribbon or squares, any thing really as long as it incorporates some kind of shape with 4 equal sides.
I created this tag, but when it came to taking a photo, that proved tricky, because of the lace paper showing/not showing. So I took three different groups of photos, and as I've always believed, look at the difference a background makes to how your creation looks. This is the same tag looking so different.
Thanks DCM for another great challenge.
Please click on the pics for larger images...and I'd just like to say the middle photo is the closest in colour to the real thing. Whether you prefer that one is another matter...but I thought it was interesting to show all three.
The tag is very large measuring approx.10"/26cm.
