Get Your Argyle On

and welcome fall!

Ok, so most of us aren't ready to let summer go yet but I decided to enter this week's challenge at Random Chaos. Random Chaos is a great blog with random scrapbooking challenges and this week's is:

do a CARD---but a card with a sentiment that is not of the norm.
like no holidays, hi, hello, thank yous. something out of the
ordinary! have fun! heheh! ;)

And its a special week at Random Chaos, people who play along have a chance to win a guest designer spot, how fun is that!

So I thought for awhile and decided I would do something along a fall theme. Then it occurred to me that Fall is when our sweaters come back out and what pattern is often on a sweater? Argyle!!! And I have an argyle embossing envelope that worked perfectly! I used coredinations and Pink Paisley papers along with a bit of twine, buttons and rhinestones. I like the contrast of the rhinestones against the distressed paper and twine.

I completed the card with the sentiment in Tiny Ledger stickers by Making Memories.

And I've quite impressed myself, I think the card turned out even better than I expected.
