RIC#15 - Lacoste

The inspiration photo for Runway Inspired Challenge #15 is this plaid creation from Lacoste.  Just the thing for doing the weekly trolley dash.

When I first made this card I added the card candi on the ribbon bands, but contrasting the colours (red dot on blue band, blue dot on butterscotch band, butterscotch dot on red band) but the balance of the card wasn't quite right.  So, after days of staring at it (not all the time you understand, just now and again) to get inspiration, I peeled the dots off and replaced them above the bands, replicating the order, and now I'm happy with it.  Happy everything!
