Playing With Plaid...

Hi! I was cleaning up my stash and came across a half finished plaid card base. I think I had started it when I got my first set of Altenew inks. Since I wanted to enter the challenge at Pixies's Snippets, this worked perfectly! Here is the card I created.

I just added the stitching lines with an old Itsy Bitsy stamp set. The sentiment is part of the Graphic Greetings series by Taylored Expressions and is called Birthday. I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I blended some pink colour around the edges to make it stand out. To finish I cut a mat out of some translucent cream paper and popped up the sentiment on foam tape. I also added four half pearls from my stash at the corners.

Love the way this card turned out. Entering it in the following challenges:

The challenge that started it all! I have been following Di's big giveaway posts fairly regularly and wanted to add my snippets card to the gallery.
