This is for SC 131, as well as Color Challenge #2 :-)
I am working my way through the entire color challenge list, combining with other challenges.
I like how this turned out...except I wanted the plaid panel to be larger. I have a hard time getting BG stamps to go on evenly, so a sizable portion was faded. I just compensated with a larger red panel. I also used the ladybugs in red to border the inside top and bottom

I know what you mean about the BG stamps. Here's what I do: I ink the entire stamp, then leave it rubber side up and place my cardstock on top. I place a larger scrap over it and the rub the paper until I feel I will have enough coverage. I love my BG stamps, but they can be awkward to handle. Nice job on the card!

I love the ladybugs and the plaid.

Cute! I always lay my b/g stamps rubber side up and ink them well. Then I lay my cardstock on top of the rubber and while carefully holding it still, I rub it all over making sure to get it all inked. It's SO much easier than trying to stamp the other way!!
