FFC35 - Merry Christmas!

Click to link up to Darnell's birthday party by July 16. 


Time for our next Festive Friday Challenge! Here's our inspiration:


I focused on the plaid (I loved plaid even before I married a Scot 17 years ago tomorrow!) and picked up the glittery silver from the tag on the red present. I used a Gina K sentiment and curved my white panel to pick up the curve of the plate. (Is that a plate?!) The plaid is old Basic Grey DP.

Now it's your turn - link up before the deadline on Wednesday, July 16. I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

What a fabulous card. The contrast of the white and plaid is so eye-catching, and the curved line of the white perfectly sets off the straight lines in the plaid. Congrats 1 day early for your 17 year anniversary. I hope you can celebrate somewhere fun.

Eeep!! So extremely genius, Ardy!! I LOVE plaid and oh my gosh this looks like a little girl all dressed for a Christmas party in her plaid jumper, white blouse, and little black patent leather shoes with silver buckles!! Thud. Hugs, Darnell

Stunning! It just screams Scotland (actually it reminds me of the Scottish wedding in Four Weddings And A Funeral - not sure which tartan it was, but it still reminds me :)

This is wonderful Ardyth. The tartan looks so good next to the white. I should make one like this for my Dad, he is a proud McDonald!
