House of Cards - July Challenge 5th Week - Photo Inspiration

It's our first ever fifth week photo inspiration challenge over at House of Cards and first it's turn of the Cute and Fun DT to provide some fabulous samples to get your mojo going!  
First, let's look at the photo...

~ Here it is ~


Interpret the photo in any way that you wish, just as long as we can spot the theme
Please join us this week for our challenge--it's ANY CARD MAKING STYLE GOES this week!  You can link up HERE in the original challenge post.  
Here's the card I made ...

This card started life as a cream 6" x 6" scalloped card blank
The DPs are from American Crafts "Here and There" paper stack
The black cardstock was from The Papermill (when the shops were still open!)
I do miss this shop, in fact when I heard on the grapevine that they were shutting up shop I travelled to Liverpool (the last store to close) on the train to stock up . . . I'm so glad I did.

I used a ready coloured Mo Manning image from The Hobby House because I was really short on time.
I ran a Quickie Glue pen edge all around the edge of the shape and dipped them in Glamour Dust.

I embellished the card with acrylic gem flourish corners, inexpensive gauze dressing squares (from my local pound shop) and finished with Wild Orchid flowers and leaves.  I further enhanced them with Stickles Star Dust.

The inside of the card was decorated to match the front

Why not have a go at the challenge this week, it's really fun and it's any style goes this week just as long as you use the photo inspiration.
Pop over and have a look what the rest of my DT came up with too, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for visiting
