Plaid and Buttons!

This is my card for the Doubledog Dare challenge this week: Plaid and Buttons! I was a little curious how the combo would work but I think all is well with this one!

I created the plaid background using SU Flannel Plaid BG stamp in Artichoke and Chocolate chip to go along with the Color Challenge this week over on SCS -- Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke.

The button is really two buttons -- a large brown one from GinaK and an Always Artichoke one from SU, stacked on top of each other. I punched some leafy branches with an EK Success punch to tuck under the buttons so they weren't sitting there unadorned and random looking!

I can't believe there's nothing Martha Stewart on this card?? Must be late. (LOL!)

Very pretty! Love your rounding of opposite corners. I never thought about using two colors on that background stamp. Thanks for the idea!
