Argus is Foiled Again!

Meet Argus and his friend Teddy. Aren't they sweet? This is another stamp from Paper Makeup Stamps. Katie has a cute line of monsters and aliens along with her Beautiful Day Fairies. This is the first time I'm using one of the monsters, and I just love this guy! He's "foiled again" because I played in the Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS today, which was to use foil on your card. Well, I made my brads from small pieces of foil! Pretty cool idea, using foil! I also used yesterday's Sketch Challenge for this card. I just turned the sketch to accommodate Argus.

For some reason, I thought Argus should be green and orange. I looked through my stash for paper to match and I still had some of this retired SU Jersey Shore (love that paper) and matted it with Wild Wasabi and Brilliant Blue! The sentiment is also PMS called Heart Happy and fit it the large tag die perfectly. I tied some orange gingham ribbon through the holes. The main panel and sentiment are up on dimensionals. After I took the picture and was downloading it, I realized I didn't add any SPARKLE to my card! What was I thinking? I think it's because I'm sick and just wanted to finish this and get to bed early! I guess I can add it later! Thanks for stopping by today! Love all you comments...they are appreciated!
