Friendship flags


Hi everyone!

Wanted to post this card I made for a friend who loves plaid and gingham.
It's not easy to combine the two. 

Gingham conjures up images of aprons and tablecloths and country farmhouses, while plaid always makes me think of Scotland and kilts and winter scarves!

BG was created by stamping two different gingham stamps in opposite directions in both grey and red. Sentiment and leafy branches by The Stamps Of Life. Flag PP is Basic Grey, and twill is May Arts.

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*

This is such a great card. Everything works so well together. I would not have known that gingham and plaid do not go together if you hadn't mentioned it. They look great. I"m sure your friend will love the card.

Ingenious! Those wee flags are fabulous! So inspiring on so many levels. The doily/Gigham/paid trio is a real winner!
