MCT What A Treat ~ sweet baby!

Hi, today I wanted to share with you a gift card using that I made for my sweet nephew and his wife's new baby...and my first great nephew.  Yep, I'm a first time great auntie!  
They live in Alaska so it's going to be awhile before I get to hold him :(
I'm so excited for my sister/brother in law for becoming first time grandparents!

I've been wanting to create my own plaid using stamps and finally had time to try.  First I gathered a bunch of my stamps that I thought would make cool lines and then narrowed the list down.  I used "streets", "paper lines", and other stamps that weren't made for this technique.  Just another way to get more out of your stamps :)  I used a large piece of paper, so you will be seeing another project with this same "background" paper.

Congratulations on being a Great Aunt! I love how you made your plaid background and the safety pins are an adorable background also. Your cow is colored and shaded perfectly and is so cute on the scalloped circle! Beautiful job.
