House of Cards February Challenge

Hi, Everybody! 

 It's time for another new challenge at House of Cards! We have a fabulous inspiration picture and we cannot wait to see what you create with it!


For the next two weeks we're asking for 

CAS CARDS AND/OR CLASSICALLY DESIGNED CARDS
PLUS WE'D LIKE YOU TO BE INSPIRED
BY EITHER THE COLORS OR THE PHOTO
OR BOTH~


summer tones


Isn't this picture gorgeous - I am sure it will inspire you as well!

Here is what I came up with:


I used the Memory Box Woodland Branch die, which I doulbled up to make it a bit more substantial.  The blossoms I made with the Starburst punch from McGill., sponged them and added some Stickles. The sentimant is Papertrey Think Big Favorites. I took some Tim Holtz distress stains and added a bit extra color. I hope you like it and play with us at House of Cards!

Love this. Great job at capturing the colours.

Such a pretty card. Love how you turned the starbursts into flowers!

Susanne Vargas said...

I like that you used that branch as a flower stem. I usually see it only as a branch with things hanging from it or birds sitting on it which I like a lot but it's nice to see it used differently! And those blossoms are totally cool!

Wow those colours are gorgeous and I love your interpretation. I'll be checking in to House of cards challenges for sure. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
