Mad for Plaid!

Hello all! If you hopped on over to Flourishes on Tuesday -- you know the FTTC challenge this week is to prove that you're Mad about Plaid! That's right, just that easy -- use plaid or houndstooth in your design! Since this challenge was easy peasy and since I still need to get some cards set aside for Christmas, I decided to get in on the fun!

So, off to my creation! 

For my card, I decided to use the Winter Berries set and create a wreath -- if you saw THIS post, it shows a tutorial on how I did this with the leaf and berry cluster and a bunch of quick masking. I stamped onto a circle from the Spellbinders Standard Circles LG die set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored it up with Copic markers. (See my supply list for the list of colors that I used!)  I paired it with some Reflections Christmas paper and some So this is Christmas paper too. Add a doily, a fun glittered border, some red seam binding ribbon and almost done! I added some paper piercing to my plaid panel and attached it all to some fabulous Classic Kraft paper. 

Here's a close up so you can see my wreath....

And that, my friends, is it! Now it’s your turn to create a project using plaid or houndstooth patterns. Make sure to check out the rules and link up your creation on this post HERE for a chance to win a prize…remember, if you use a Flourishes set your chances of winning go up! Have fun and I hope you make time to play along!
