Addicted to CAS - Plaid

We have another fun challenge starting today over at Addicted to CAS!  Hope you have time to come on over and see the inspiration and join in on the challenge!

The code word for the challenge is Plaid!  If you play along you have a chance to win a gift certificate to Create a Smile, which is a wonderful stamp company!  Love them!

This was a bit of a challenge, because I don't have any plaid paper! Also, wasn't sure how I wanted to use the plaid paper that I would have to create.  In the end, here's what I came up with...

I'm still in the mode of making birthday cards, you can never have enough!

I started by making my plaid paper (since I don't have any) by using my diagonal stamp and some orange and blue ink.

I then stamped my magician and colored him with copic markers.  I added the sentiment to the bottom and then added a little string for the magician to hold the balloon.

This will be the perfect birthday card for my nephew!

Here's a close up to give you a bit more detail.

  4. OMG!!! This totally awesome and absolutely clever card, Susan!

  5. Susan, this is so smart to place a big plaid die cut off the edge and shift the focus to a coloured image, love it! - Sweet Kobylkin
