Plaid Flower

I love plaid. Really I have a plaid obsession. I thought it had bleed into my wardrobe until I actually purchase a plaid shirt. Yea, it didn't really work for me. But when it comes to paper... LOVE IT. Maybe I'll just cut up that Urban Outfitters shirt and use for a card... that would quite possibly the most expensive card I've ever made.

Okay, but back to this card. I used one of trees from Dawn's set to make the flower. It was actually totally inspired by a card Dawn sent me. It was so cute I had to do my own interpretation. 

Stamps: Funky Foliage (WPlus9), Where You Should Be, Friendship. Love. Miracles. (Unity Stamp Co.) Ink: Watermark Ink (VersaMark), Vintage Sepia (VersaFine), Snow Chalk Ink (Hero Arts) Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive (Stampin' Up!) Patterned Paper: Lush Brown Houndstooth (My Minds Eye), South Forty (October Afternoon) Button: Green Vintage Style Sew-On Button (Jenni Bowlin) Fibers: Burlap String (May Arts)
 Love that October Afternoon paper!

You are so clever Courtney, way to use stamps in an unconvential way. Love the plaid too, I think its making a comeback. My mom used to make me wear it ALL the time. I don't think I would actually wear it today though. The Flickr set of cards is neat, its nice to see cards grouped all together and to see what people have made with your sets.
