Card with "checker pattern"

Gina's challenge over on Stamp TV was to make a card "using checkers"...she has an adorable red checkered tote for inspiration...and pointed out that checkers make you think of picnics...spring...big sigh (since I'm sitting here in snow up to my knees)...
so I went with Spring!

can't wait until Spring gets here and can enjoy our porch and a Spring breeze (not summer - then I will be complaining about the heat LOL)
using Basic Grey's Lemonade papers and Gina K's Green Apple and Sweet Corn...then found the cool checkered ribbon in stash (love it)....used Gina K's "The Journey" by Asela...sponged focal with SU's mustard, saffron, coral and old olive...stamped with Memento Black and colored with Copics E31, E33. (mini grass stamp unknown)

Sentiment on the inside is from Hero Arts (I think)

have a blessed day!

Hi Linda,
This card certainly is a breath of springtime. It's beautifully put together and the checks really work.
The snow is back here again - not a lot but enough to make spring a dream.
Hugs,
