HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #207 ~ "USE PLAID"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! It is SO GOOD to be back creating again. The procedures on my back went well. I am on the road to recovery and already feeling much better than I have in years. This week starts a new challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and we'd love you to join us. You can "Use Plaid" or you can choose "Anything Goes" as your theme to use with your House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies stamps by House-Mouse Designs®

For my card I used this sweet "Balance Act" stamp from Stampendous! I stamped it on X-Press it card stock, colored it with Copic Markers (ornaments) & Prismacolor Pencils (Monica Mouse), and die cut it with the "Stitched Rectangles" Dies from My Favorite Things.

The card stock is from the Recollections "Christmas" assortment and the plaid paper is from my stash of paper scraps. (I even found a piece large enough to line the envelope with.) I added some American Crafts twine, SU! bling, and a charm from my stash to finish off the card.

Now on to the Challenge Details:
