MFT March Release Countdown: 5!

Hi there and welcome back to the March Release Countdown from My Favorite Things! Haven't the peeks been awesome so far? We've got more great stuff to introduce today so head on over to the MFT Blog for all of today's details!

I've got a card to share that uses the Wood Plank Background and a sentiment from Lisa Johnson's new set, Words of Inspiration. I've also used my fave Plaid Background Builder, Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose, and Leaf-Filled Flourish. The colors are from this month's Color Palette Challenge of Grapesicle, Berrylicious, Sour Apple, and Natural. I LOVE that this color challenge gets me to spread my wings, so to speak, and use colors that I normally wouldn't use together. I also find that when I'm struggling to combine colors I reach for the Plaid Background Builder ;) Makes it so easy to combine them.

So here's my card. I am SO IN LOVE with the Wood Plank Background. L.O.V.E.

You are my plaid guru (a mft stamp set that I own and LOVE)! I love how you used it this card since I am also a sucker for woodgrain.

Love how you used the wood grain on the grapesicle card rather than traditional brown. It looks beautiful and the colors are so lovely together!!
