You are my polka-dotted and plaid sunshine!

This weeks' Unity Bachelor Challenge (UBBRO3) is all about polka dots and plaid. Eeks...I don't have any plaid background stamps or paper so I made my own in Illustrator and coordinated the stripes to match the SU Pumpkin Pie, Cosmo Cricket paper (looks like SU Wild Wasabi) and chocolate cardstock and papers I used.
The images (pocket, polka-dotted cloud, sentiment and sun) are all from Unity's July KOTM-A pocket full of... and are a combination of paper piecing and colouring with copics. To add more polka dots, I embossed a portion of my image block with a Cuttlebug border template. Wendy, you're just didn't look complete without the stitching.

My colour combo seems to work for Gina K. Designs' World Card Making Day Color Challenge (WCMD09J) since I used SU Pumpkin Pie, SU Very Vanilla and Gina K's Pure Luxury chocolate (so scrumptious!).
Thanks for looking...and because you did, how about a freebie? I'm not sure if this will work, but let's try...

Click on the plaid swatch below to view a larger format. Right-click on the full-size plaid image, choose Save Picture As... and save the .png file where you would normally save your files.

Print your plaid in colour on a neutral cardstock and have some fun!!
