Hello in Plaid

Having fun with a stamp set in my last W&W order--Scenery Stripes.  I've been wanting to make my own plaids & here's my first attempt. 
I used the W&W April Color Combo just in time as the challenge is about to end.  The W&W hello die is still one of my favorites--great size for many different techniques.  The little word is from SSS Thoughtful Messages.  I used HA Cornflower Blue & Soft Pool along with PTI Hawaiian Shores & Spring Rain.  I used a textured white cardstock for the card base & rounded the corners.  Decided to keep it very CAS, so no splatters or embellishments & I like it!  I'm also entering Time Out Challenges & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
