House of Cards Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,
can you believe we've come to the end of our third term here at House of Cards?!  We are saying a fond farewell to some of our DT members and feel so grateful to those staying on.  To say goodbye and thank you, we're celebrating with a blog hop!  You should have arrived here from the wonderfully talented Cohenna.  This hop will run FROM June 1ST AT 6:00 AM CST THROUGHJune 15TH AT NOON CST,  ANY CARD STYLE is welcome and we've got a gorgeous photo inspiration for your crafting enjoyment! 

Here's our photo inspiration~

And here is my card:

You can easily see what inspired me here - the picture frame and the pink flowers. I used this awesome digital stamp called Blossom 1 from our sponsor Stitchy Bear, magnified it and printed a part of it. I colored it with watercolors and added Stickles to the center pf the blossoms. The black frame I cut with a die by Simon Says. the birthday die is by Papertrey. Added Washi tape.

Blossom 1

And here you get to enjoy another view of my card ;)
