The Winners and Basic Plaid for Christmas

I apologize for posting so late today with the winners of the blog candy - I had a busy day and just got home - so without further ado - I had 74 comments on the blog candy posting last night and the Random Interger software chose # 64 as the first winner and #4 as the second winner.

So this 1st package will be going out to #64 dpkennedy who said:

Now onto a card!
I made this one for the Mad for Plaid Challenge on Split coast where we had to use plaid on our card. I used Kraft for my card base and Basic Grey Two Scoops plaid for my background and just stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink right on it.

I was going for the simple homespun look. I added a punched snowflake (Martha Steward) and brad (Making Memories) . Then I just tied the ribbon (Stampin Up) around the top. This will most likely be one of my Christmas cards this year as I like how it looks and it was really quick in getting together!

I've been meaning to get started on my Christmas cards - so this was the day!

Stamps: Holiday Wishes: Papertrey Ink
Paper: Kraft, Wild Wasabi: SU, DP Basic Grey Two Scoops
Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Craft White: SU
Accessories: sponge, snowflake punch: Martha Stewart, Wild Wasabi striped grosgrain Ribbon: SU, brad: Making Memories, foam dimensionals
