Love You Card and Sketch Challenge

My DD and I went shopping the other day for some retail therapy - she had just had a minor surgical procedure and her neck was in pain so she decided she needed pain relief that only shopping could give her.  Amazing that at only 12 she already appreciates the healing powers that clothes shopping has!

While out shopping, I convinced her to go to the craft store afterwards.  It was obvious how wonderful her clothes shopping experience was since she said "OK" without hesitation (she HATES when I drag her to the scrapbook store....).  She enjoyed the craft shopping so much that she even helped pick out some of the papers including a paper pack from 7Gypsies called Paddington.  The set is mostly black and white with a very urban London feel - very appropriate since we used to live in London!

I had to make something with it and came across this argyle cut file I downloaded ages ago along with some argyle ribbon.  Perfect!

Entering this in two challenges:

  • Printed Paper = 7Gypsies Paddington set
  • Ribbon = Ribbon Trends
  • Ribbon Buckle = JoAnne's
  • Rhinestones = Michael's dollar bin
  • Stamp = TPC Studio Greetings set
  • Ink = StayzOn Jet Black
  • Chipboard circle tag = Thickers Accents
  • Glitter Glue around sentiment = Ranger Stickles (black)


  1. Wow, beautiful combination of patterns. I love how the argyle cut coordinates with the black & white harlequin ribbon. The touch of gold is so rich and elegant! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  2. Oh I love how you did this! Splendid! Thanks for playing at Unscripted Sketches!

  3. Wow! What a lot of work...but definitely well worth the effort because this card is spectacular! Everyting (and I mean everythinig!) works absolutely perfectly together. Love the zig zag cut at the bottom of the mat and that argyle ribon is devine! Thanks for sharing this great creation with us this week at Unscripted Sketches! Please stop by again if you can because we have some awesome sketches planned :)

  4. Wow, I love that pattern, what a neat card and neat use of the Unscripted sketch.
