INK #253 - Plaid

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have the theme of PLAID, chosen by Marlena and yours truly. I love plaid patterns, or gingham or tartan or whatever you like to call it, and this time I chose it for the background and also the paper pieced outfit of the little girl from Stamping Bella.

For the most part I aim to buy gifts, but sometimes a gift card or money is the best option, and then it's nice to personalize it with a handmade giftcard- or money holder. This one is kept closed with white string. 

Plaid papers are from Maja Design, I used a scalloped border die from MFT, the others are Pinkfresh Studio.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see the my INK-teamies have made.  

This card is also for:
Fab n Funky
- #540 Checks and/or Plaids
Moving along with the Times
- #136 Anything But A Card
November Rudolph Days Challenge

I love plaid patterns too (even if I haven't so much of them) and absolutely love how you combined that green and red paper with the super cute paper-pieced little girl, the holly and the scallop border in the centre. The string is the perfect touch! The design is very sweet, and I have to say that this gift card is one of my favourite from your latest makes. Pinned!

It's great that you layered the plaids but they still are distinct from each other. This is a great, cute design.
