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 right...it 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!!
