Food &/or Color Inspiration for House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Before I get to the card I'm sharing with you today, I have some very exciting news! Some of you might remember that I applied for the new House of Cards design team, with this card early last month. To my absolute surprise, I MADE THE TEAM!!!

I found out almost two weeks ago and it's been a struggle to keep it from all of you! The news is still sinking in, but I think it will now with this post. I must say a HUGE THANK YOU to Mynn for allowing me to join the team I guested for back in February with this card. I'm SO honored to be joining such an amazingly talented group of ladies!

Ok, enough chatter, for now. Here's the inspiration and cues for this month's challenge, Food and/ or colors...

And my card, with it's snazzy new watermark...

While I love the summery colors in the cue card, I've chosen to go with the food theme. Not only is this my DT debut card for House of Cards, the stamp set is one from my NBUS (never before used stuff) pile, Stampin' Up!'s A Happy Thing from this year's Sale-a-Bration (now retired).

Card: Whisper White and Old Olive
Ink: Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise
Stamp set: A Happy Thing (retired)
