Pile It On! Challenge - I'm loving plaid!

The theme of this week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'I'm Loving Plaid!'

Our sponsor for this challenge is PaperCraftingWorld, and the prize is a digi stamp or cutting file of the winner's choice.

I took a gorgeous sheet of plaid/checked paper from the 'Hippity Hoppity' Scrapbook pad by We R Memory Keepers as my starting point, and watercoloured an adorable Peeny Black image (called 'Nose Kiss') to match, adding some Glossy Accents to the heart. The sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly, the flowers are Prima and the sparkly brads are American Crafts.
