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',


Thanks for showing me some blog love with your comments!
