>>> Card Challenges! <<<

Killing 2 birds with one stone here and completing 2 challenges with 1 card! Firstly, the challenge at 365 Cards Day 80, entitled 'You're So Plaid'. It requires you to create a plaid pattern on the card. My first thought when I saw it was to make use of Chatterbox papers, not the recent ones but those that came out in 2005/6. There were lots of plaid patterns in almost all the old Chatterbox collections. And yes, I've been hoarding a fair few of them.

Secondly, the challenge at Card Patterns Sketch #15. Here's the required sketch:


Here's my take on both challenges:

Patterned papers by Chatterbox Sun Burst collection. Stamped image is Lola with bird by Rachelle Anne Miller (purchased secondhand) and sentiment by Unity. Also made use of Cuttlebug embossing folder and Stamping Up border punch.

TTFN!
