New Challenge at House Of Cards ~ Metallic

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!

It's time for a new challenge over at House of Cards and this month we have a great theme for you...

I've used one of my favorite embossing folders, Boho Chic from Stampin' Up! and a favorite stamp set that you've been seeing a lot of on my blog this week, Me = Grateful, for my card...

I've heat embossed the design in Gold and added more metallic with a blue metallic marker.

Card: Whisper White
Ink: Versamark
Marker: Blue Metallic from Paper Mania (set of 5 with pink, green, gold and silver)
Stamp set: Me = Grateful
Tools and embellishments: Boho Chic TIEF, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and Heat Tool, Deco Labels Framelits, Basic Pearls (colored with the marker)
Adhesive: Stampin' Dimensionals

  10. What a lovely interpretation of this months challenge. I love the blue, white and gold color combo. Great card!

  11. Love your CAS card design. I also love that your embossed the sentiment which made it pop. Great job! So glad you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with an awesome inspiration from the Scripture in Hebrews 3:6 and it says, "But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Have an awesome week.
