Addicted to CAS Challenge #87





Hi there blog friends ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Plaid'!
Here are the details:

- Our Hostess is Anja 
- Our Sponsor is Create A Smile
- Our Guest Designer is Shona Chambers
Here is my take on the Code Word:




I started by creating my own plaid pattern with Post-It tape and several inks (channeling my inner Laura Bassen), then die cut the elephant and added the sentiment.

My teammates at Addicted to CAS have created some beautiful cards, and we would love to have you join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Pretty plaid elephant, Barb! It took a while till I and my daughter have found the color combination of your plaid :). The scallop border works always so well on a cute card!
