Shabby Kraft card + Argyle pattern.

Hello all !
Today i am showcasing another card creation for the very lovely 
We were challenged by Snehal to use some Argyle pattern on our projects. 
First thing I did when I heard the theme was to pull out all things that had a "Argyle" 
Its basically all sorts of Diamonds and Lozenges. 
I had just got this amazing new paper pad by My Mind's Eye 
It had very summery colored argyle pattern so i just took a dive !
Loved this challenge ! 
I decided to not use More than 2 dies on this project and when i timed myself 
it went on pretty well all in 20 Mins ! 
here is the card 
I love Kraft ! So i figured what better way to bring out my summer colors other than some Kraft !
I picked my usual Kraft paper bags that u get when u shop groceries and cut out my square , i crushed it and made a ball out of it and smoothed it out again and used it on the cardstock to give it a shabby look . 
 I was just sitting and stamping this My Mind's Eye - sweetest thing collection stamp flower in all different colors on a scrap paper when i realized it looks really beautiful ! So i fuzzy cut them all (which took a bit of time otherwise the card would have been quicker)

 So then i just lined my paper put the stamped flowers on top with some leaves and the doily and the sentiment for you cut with Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Card Phrases Set #3
on the top and i was done !
 Those are some lovely flowers on the inside. cute right ?
Finished up with some rhinestones :) 
Hope u like it !
