Make It Monday #190 - Plaid Background


I happen to have this stripes set from Papertrey that Ashley Cannon Newell uses so expertly in her card. The video is really helpful, too. I have tried before to make a plaid background, but never liked the result of it. This time its different, thanks to Ashley! 
I turned it into a Holiday card - what else, at this time of the year....



The die cuts are from Papertrey as well. I really love that silver glitter paper. I have been using it quite a bit, lately. 


I almost forgot - the little "cheer" is by Paper Smooches. And added two sequins.

I am also linking my card with Inkspirational
Colour me....! - although my turquoise looks kind of blue here...




By the way - there is still the Black Friday sale going on at STAMPlorations:


You may want to take advantage of it!
