Plaid – 3 color families

Hello! Thanks for visiting. I’m here with a card inspired by CASology’s Week 161 challenge: Plaid. I missed the deadline for CASology though!


First I sponged 3 basic colors, yellow, green and purple. Then I used stamps from PTI’s Plaid Builder and Background Basics: Super Stripes Stamp Set. The “XOXO” sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers’ Bold Birthday Sentiments.I think that this sentiment will be a “go to” sentiment for me!

IMG_0901editedI would like to play this card at SSS’s Monday Challenge: A Trio of Colors.

IMG_0926editedI used a new embossing folder, fittingly named “Argyle Textured Impressions”. I really really like this embossing folder!

Thanks for stopping by!
