House of Cards Month One Challenge

This is my first post for the House of Cards Challenge Blog and boy am I excited about this challenge! The idea of the House of Cards challenge is to take one colour combo, sketch or inspiration photo and use it in four different card styles - Cute and Fun, CAS, Classic and Elegant and Shabby and Vintage, with each design team showcasing their cards one week at a time. The week it is the Cute and Fun design team's turn to share their creations and that means me!!!

This month we will be working with a fun and fresh colour palette.  Please choose at least 3 of these colours to create with!

Here's the colour palette...

And here's my card using the gorgeous Sabrina from Saturated Canary...

And here's the inside as well...


Stamps: Sabrina digi stamp from Saturated Canary, Beautiful Blooms II, Tiny Tags, Pretty Peonies all from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, In Colors 2011-13 DSP Stack all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card

Inks: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party all from Stampin' up, Copic Markers

Accessories: Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon (Retired), In Color 2011-13 Brads, Pool Party Baker's Twine all from Stampin' Up, Heart Banner Die, Filigree Corner Die both from La-La Land Crafts, Heart pearl from Hobbycraft, Paper Doily from eBay, Paper Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Stardust Stickles, Old Swedish Lace Die from Magnolia

Hope you can join in our challenge this month. You can join in as many times as you like with any of the card styles. Just remember to make a new card each time.

Happy Stamping!!!
