Holiday and/or Colors at 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!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards.  This month we're asking you to create a holiday card, and or colors from the inspiration image...

Unsurprisingly, for the fourth straight month, I've used the same die as the base...

Card: Su's thick whisper white, smoky slate, cherry cobbler and cucumber crush
Ink: SU's smoky slate
Stamp sets: Die'sire Sentimentals Memories are Made
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Noble Ornate Pierced Squares and Sweet William (finishing touches range), and CE black pearls

#305-306 at Pixie's Snippets Playground
#306-307 at Word Art Wednesday
#189 AAG at Artistic Inspirations

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

  12. I love this pretty card, Em. The flowers are so lovely. I have not grown Sweet Williams for many years, but think they are such a pretty flower. My garden is so small now that we have downsized, that I don't have the room for annuals that I had before. I try to keep annuals in pots and the perennials in my smallish flower bed. h


I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking time to leave them!
