House of Cards - August Challenge

It's hard to believe that it's already August. It's sad to see that the days are getting shorter. Since it's August 1st, there must be a new challenge at House of Cards.

Floral Images and/or Colors

Here's my card

I tried to incorporate as many of the colours on the photo inspiration (as I had ink colours) and used a floral stamp set. I used MFT Sketched Blooms stamp set with Hero Arts inks (Orchid, Passion Flower, Raspberry Jam) and Simon Says STAMP ink (fossil). The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Made for You stamp set and cut out with Stampin' Up's oval punch. I found a scrap of printed paper that complemented the colours, so I used that as a background for the sentiment. 

We'd love for you to join us by creating a card using floral images or the colours posted above.

Thanks for visiting

  3. Beautiful card and I like that paper, we often forget to leave white space that makes the card shine. Donna HOC Teammie
