Merry Monday #187!

Hi Stampers and welcome to a new challenge at Merry Monday Challenge this week. I hope you are going to have a great week and plan on playing along with all of us. Colleen is asking for plaids on our cards this week:

I had to think hard on this one as I had a hard time finding something I owned with plaids on it. I'm not a designer paper hoarder so I dug out the remaining papers I used for the past few months during the holiday months and found one sheet, can you spot it?

I used the sheet of plaid paper to cut out my two ornaments from. Once those were both cut out, I added a layer of Red Foil behind each ornament and at the top for the hooky-thingy. It's so pretty in real life. I also added another layer of designer paper behind the ornaments with a different pattern that I stamped branches on. I like the way this looks:
