Just Us Girls #206 Technique Challenge

This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is to use a grid technique.  I have chosen to use the grid in the middle of a large die.  I think it gives my card a real country feel.  The die with the grid pattern reminds me of a country quilt.  The die I used is Spellbinders A2 Floral Ribbon Threader.  It is actually two dies put together.  I cut them onto white cardstock.  I removed the dies and created the grid pattern with my Scor-Buddy.  I put the inner die back onto the cardstock and sponged with GKD Sweet Corn ink.  I wove a thin yellow ribbon along the sides of the die cut.  I attached this panel onto a piece of patterned paper from The Paper Studio, and then attached it to a GKD Cherry Red card base.  I chose the Red Clover stamp as my focal image.  I stamped it onto white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut the flower and attached it with 1/4" pop dots.  The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock and cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval die.  I sponged it with Sweet Corn ink and attached it with 1/4" pop dots.  I added a little yellow bow.
