This week the challenge at Meljen's Designs is to use plaid and/or stripes on your project. I wanted to try to use both and it was a challenge for sure. The plaid was really easy. I just knew the Sweet Little Donkey would be adorable paper pieced in plaid. Finding the right stripe paper was the real challenge.
The card ended up being monochromatic, but I didn't plan that! I cut the oval using my cricut and the Lacy Labels cartridge. It actually started out as a circle, but I altered it to make an oval. I added some doodling and some pearls and popped the oval up with some leftover stamp foam. I originally had it flat on the card and it didn't stand out at all. It is amazing what one minor change can make to the overall design!
Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
