Colored Pencils on Dark & or Colors for HOC

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 use colored pencils on dark card, and or use the colors from the inspiration image...

I went with the colors, so here's my card...

Card: SU's Basic Black, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Sydney from the Australian collection and Striped Nasturtiums from the Finishing Touches collection, and CE black pearls

#320 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground
#160 AG at Crafty Gals Corner

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


  1. Hi Em this is a stunning card I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. Love this card Em! Love the layered central dies with a little flower in each corner - so pretty. And I never think to colour on dark card - hey, ho - another one to try out!

    Great to see you in the Playground!
