Thump, Thump Away

Dear Ones~
This week it's my turn to host over at The Mod Squad. The challenge is to  
use the Thumping Technique on your project

 Recently, members of The Gina K Designs Friends Group over on Facebook asked Gina to share the very first video she ever made. You can view it HERE. She showed us how to do the Thumping Technique, so I thought it would be fun to make that our challenge.

A $20 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store.

Here is my card: 
For this card I used a Gina K Designs stamp set called Dazzling Dahlia. The greeting is from the GKD stamp set Fabulous Rose Frame. For the background patterned papers I used the new Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp and the new Rose Lace Background Stamp. To make that plaid background I stamped the Diagonal Stripe in Passionate Pink Ink, turned the card stock 90 degrees, and stamped again in Lucky Clover Ink. I love how it makes that awesome plaid.
