MIM: A La Carte: Diamond Wallpaper Stamping

   Now that the holidays are over and I can get back into my routine, I have time to not only make cards, but post them on this neglected blog. I love this week's challenge at PTI's MIM: A la Carte which is to revisit a challenge one did not already participate in. Although I did quite a few in 2014, there were still some I missed.
  My husband and brother-in-law both have a birthday in the middle of January.  I thought the
MIM: # 174 Diamond Wallpaper Stamping technique was perfect for a masculine card. I used a stamp from Square Prints to create my diamonds. This is my take.

   I used the color combination from this month's Inspiration Archive at PTI.

Now I have to decide who is getting this card. My husband or brother-in-law. I guess that depends on how my next masculine card turns out. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

I got a chuckle out of your remark about your neglected blog - I feel the same about mine. You've done a lovely job with your card design and the color palette is perfect for the new year!

Perfect card, and I love that diamond pattern you made. Your stamping and lining up is so well done. I have had a hard time with that stamp set.
