How awesome to showcase this stamp on so many cards- your ideas are fabulous! Love the sketch card. This is also a great idea to find a plaid in a color to match a card- I always have such difficulty with that! Awesome!


I like all the different ways you used the plaid stamp set. I usually think of Scotland and my grandmother when I think of plaid, but I love how you showed a lot of other options with it. So pretty!
