Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Plush & Plaid

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!
The LEAD of the Plush & Plaid Challenge will be invited as a
Guest Designer in a future challenge!
Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge Blog for all the challenge info and deadline.
These plaids look so cozy and warm!
I didn't have any plaid patterned paper in my stash, so
I decided to create my own for my card.

I started with a piece of orange zest cardstock.
Oh this, I stamped my SSS Wide Stripes stamp in Wplus9 Warm Wool ink twice --
once horizontally and a second time vertically.
I let the ink dry and covered it with my embossing tool.
Then, using an emboss marker and ruler, I drew lines, which I embossed
using Zing! Butter embossing powder.
Then, I repeated this process using red Zing! embossing powder.
I trimmed my panel at an angle so the plaid would appear on an angle.

I adhered a panel over the plaid, which I stamped using SSS Big Scripty Sentiments.
I stamped some MFT Fall Florals stamps on coordinating diecuts.
A couple of buttons and twine finish it off.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
Thanks for looking!
