Plaid Thank You

I'm officially ready for fall.  The heat and humidity have really kicked in - we broke down and left the air conditioner on in the bedroom last night.  It's nice to sleep in but walking out of the room in the morning is like a slap in the face!  Blerg!


For this week's ColourQ challenge I tried to not only incorporate the colours but also the picture so I worked a little plaid into the card.  I thought this Hero Arts flower would be perfect and I tried to make the stripes plaid-esque.  I'm also going to enter this in the Moxie Fab stamping challenge.  


CS: Bazzill & SU; Stamps:  Hero Arts & PTI; Inks: VersaFine & SU;  Gem:  Doodlebug; Other: Glossy Accents


Tomorrow we'll be installing a new sink in our laundry room and then heading down to the dock to cool off.  I think we'll be spending a lot of time floating around the bay this summer!  Hope everyone in the US and Canada are enjoying their long holiday weekends!

Your plaid flower is uber cool! Love your use of those inspiration colours and fab layout!
Maybe you could just live in your bedroom? Or at the bay? Sounds like it's HOT there, hope it cools down soon!

Jen,
Perfect layout and use of color. Stay cool this summer. It is not to bad here in NY. We only get up to around 85 or so. It is the rain that is killing us. Have fun wading around the bay.

What a wonderfully clean and simple design, the weaving of the stripes is a perfect touch.
