Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a color challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Gold. My Perfectly Plaid stamp set  and Wrapped In Plaid paper saw the love this week.   The Wrapped in Plaid paper is my favorite out of the whole holiday catalog and the stamp set is just adorable too.  I love the feel of traditional Christmas colors and this fits the bill beautifully.
