A Day for Daisies Challenge #129 - Add Some Plaid!

The A Day for Daisies DT is back with some more veggies this week.  My card uses the stamp Fancy Corn from the Veggie Lover Collection.  I decided to make my card and corn an homage to fall, rather than represent the yummy yellow corn that we have been enjoying this summer in MN.  I love how it turned out.  I haven't colored many veggies for cards; I've thoroughly enjoyed challenging myself these past two weeks.  As a matter of fact, the Fancy Carrots digi I used for last week's showcase card is on sale for 50% off in the ADFD shop.

Our new challenge on the ADFD blog is to Add Some Plaid.  I didn't realize how much of a challenge that would actually be until I looked through my HUGE stash of paper and realized I barely had three plaid patterns!  I found this plaid in a 6x6 pack of boy papers, but I think it works on this card.  (Now if it had been a polka dot challenge, I could have gone crazy!!)

Sketch #201 from Freshly Made Sketches helped me out with the card design.

Take a peek at the other great veggies our DT used for the challenge HERE.  I can't wait to see how you use plaid with your ADFD images!
