Fun challenge! Actually, I love my corner rounders...eons ago, I bought those little EK Success ones in three sizes. On this card, I used the largest one on the corners of the blue window frame. Nothing fancy...but there you go.
I stamped the argyle bg across the bottom and then the diamond, first in lt blue then in pale pink. I used a snowflake embossing folder on the top section then attached my skates w/ a double die cut frame. Argyle is my fave sock so I'm wondering if I can stamp this on my plain socks to dress them up. Life's too short to wear blah socks. Y'all would laugh if you saw some of the ones in my sock drawer. There's seasonal...Christmas, fall, St. Patrick's, Patriotic...really bright neon colors...and some w/ tropical birds and palm trees. I think there's even a pair of zodiac socks along w/ a jillion pair of argyles. I even took up knitting to see if I could knit a pair of argyles. Still checking on it. Turns out it's way more complicated than I thought.
Thanks so much for looking! My blog: The Write Stuff. Sorry! I had to delete a bunch of really old posts from my blog & this is one of them.

I love this in the pink and blue! I would have never thought of that combination but I love it!!! I used to love to ice skate! But I can't even imagine it today at close to 100 degrees here in Southern CA. I wish it would cool down! Oh I got off subject LOVE Your beautiful card!:)

What a wonderful winter card! The skates are so lovely and have a bit of a vintage feel to them! I also LOVE the argyle stamp too! Your framing of skates in pink and blue is lovely! Very pretty card, Julie!!!
