WT188 Who's Got Plaid???

Happy Thursday & thanks for stopping by... Today's card is for the Ways to Use It challenge "WT188" over at Splitcoast. The challenge today is "Plaid". I LOVE plaid, especially at this time of year! It adds such a warm feeling to Christmas cards. Don't have plaid, how about some plaid ribbon, patterned paper or background stamp?...

I settled for my background stamp! Can you believe I could not find any plaid paper in my stamp room? I looked high & low for plaid paper and could any... So I whipped out my handy plaid background stamp and inked it up with white craft ink. The main scene was sponged using some baja breeze and the to make it all come together I added some Martha Stewart coarse glitter. For some extra holiday detail, I added the deer from the Winter post set and some pretty snowflakes.

Hope my card puts you in the Christmas mood and if that doesn't, hope over to my Christmas blog, I have a Christmas card giveaway X's 20.

Have a wonderful day,

Sooooo pretty! I love the sparkle.

But I think you need to fix that lack of plaid paper. The horror!

(I don't think I've ever used more than two full sheets in total, but I'm sure I have at least 20+ sheets :p )
