Technique Blog Hop

There are 13 of us highlighting the Argyle technique this month.  This technique is shown on page 91 in the 2011 Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  If you have arrived here from Cherri's Blog, you are on the right track.   Initially I couldn't see past the use of a triangle for the pattern, but thanks to some inspiration from participating Consultants, I decided to step outside the box.

I decided to use the "Love Life" stamp set - one of my favorites - specifically, the large heart image and small star.  Stamping the heart, top to top and bottom to bottom, I created this background.
Then, using one of the stamp sets which coordinates with our exclusive Cricut cartridge, and coordinating Dimensional Elements, I created the focal point on this card.  I didn't want to detract much from the background so kept it simple and added a little bling.
Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy circling around the hop.  Now, hop on over to Tonya's Blog where you will find some additional inspiration for this technique.

Happy Hoppin',
