I'm mad about PLAID!

Hello all and happy Friday! .So are you done with your Christmas shopping? Have all your cards sent and cookies baked? Well, I am not quite there yet but I am getting pretty close! Baking is set for this weekend and I am hoping everything turns out delish! 

Since there is such a hustle and bustle this time of year, earlier this week I thought I would make our Creative Confetti Challenge super dooper easy for everyone to play along! If you missed it, here's the challenge! I hope you join me! I think card making is a definite stress reliever and this is the perfect time of year for that! 

All you have to do is create with a little bit of plaid somewhere on your card or creation! You can click HERE for all the official details! 

On to my creation! 

While I didn't have buffalo check plaid, I did have this sparkly plaid that looks a cousin of that check print! I thought it looked super cozy with the image I chose from Power Poppy's Cozy Cupfuls stamp set. I stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored my image up with Copic Markers sticking with vibrant reds (R32, R35, R37) kraft colors (E51, E53, and E55), shades of gold (Y21, Y32, Y35 and Y28) and then touches of green (YG61, YG63, and YG67). I did add some shading with R0000 and R00 on the top (which you can barely see in the photo) and BV00, BV000 on the bottom. Add a strip of kraft paper, some fun ribbon and a little popped up sentiment and... done!

Here's a little close up for you! As always, Christmas cards need a little glitter! ;-)

And that, my friends is it! Be sure to stop by some of my fellow Bloomies places on the web to see what wonderful things they've whipped up for you all!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a blessed holiday season full of joy, wonder and everyone you love!

Until next time!
