Challenge #33 ARGYLE

Hi Friends!
Hope you all enjoyed accessorizing your cards/ projects last fortnight.We enjoyed looking at your creations.We are back with a challenge for you this time based on pattern and what you got to use in your projects is Argyle.
A brief input on what Argyle is
The argyle  pattern is made of diamonds or lozenges. The word is sometimes used to refer to an individual diamond in the design but more commonly refers to the overall pattern.An example of Argyle is given below
The prize is sponsored by Whimsy stamps and winner gets to choose   5 free Digi stamps of his/her choice
So let the The DT inspiration for the challenge begin

Pooja  made this beautiful Shabby chic card and I love the way she blended Argyle here.Had never even imagined that Argyle could blend so beautifully with shabby chic
                                             Jovita 's brilliant interpretation of argyle by directly using diamonds on the card is inspirational.And love the way the flag just flows from the pattern.

Our very talented and Versatile Brenda came up with this masculine interpretation of Argyle.Love the earthy colours and the vintage vehicle.I just loved the way pearls were used  in this masculine card.

This is my humble interpretation of Agyle.

Hope you find it an interesting challenge and play along .
Direct post links only pls. If you have more than one project to link please link them separately.Thanks !

Challenge # 32 : Accessorise..!!

It feels so good be back to my world ..though its a brief phase ...
Still .. 
When I think of you .. 
I feel like flying ..
Anyway ...let me not strain my vocal chords and kill the music .
I just want you to play along in the present challenge .. :D
"Accessorise" have to showcase your skills.. in a card or a layout project.
The highlight should be women's or men's or a child's clothes or accessories.
I know ..its girly ...but you can come up with a manly card too..

*but yeah no mustaches and facial features.. please. 
Let me tell you .. 
you get to win ..

Goodies ..worth 500 INR from our very own Crafters Corner .. Isn't it just fantastic..I say its a win-win as always .. 

Lets begin with the inspiration parade...

To me the best example of this challenge would be this drawer chest card. 
Its so amazing and creative and innovative. 
I love the paraphernalia... and it reminds me of all the teenagers and me !! :D 
look at the adorable bikini, d spectacles. The genius lies in the overall chest that a spellbinder die. 

 Well....well...well...its not a card. Its a the latest vogue ..with its fashion tips. ;)
The stilettos, the moulin rouge inspired corset and the dresses are just about every girl's dream. 
I am so in love with everything here. 
Its an unusual looking card where the chaos is of an adolescents' mind !! :D How right ..and apt. 

Jovi's card is extremely interactive. 
Extremely adorable flowery clips..which are quilled. 
Jov the clips are extremely cute.  The blue vellum pocket is extremely innovative and functional. Love the card and the sentiment and the fantastic clips .. ofcourse. :).

This clutch bag style card and envelope is simply fabulous. The embossing is a cut above the rest and the wood veneer .. well what can I say ?? Its just the creative people who could come up with something so uhhhmazing and mind blowing. Snehal I would carry this over a chanel !!! And thats sayin' something.. !

I love love love the colour of the card. Very unusual choice. I also love simplicity of this card and the dress.. well this stamp was always on my "things to buy" list. The delicate colours and the trim make this an elegant and dainty card. oh and the frosted brads are sheer divinity .. :) 

Then its the humble whiteness and blandness from my side. I know .. It sucks in front of all the other creations be it ! :(

So ..
What else??
Well.. as I am off to my studies..and miss you guys..
You please get out all of your supplies and give us your amazing entries ..
Ciao ..
