August Challenge at House of Cards

Hi All

August brings a new challenge at House of Cards, a new breed of challenge blog which aims to welcome all kinds of card making styles into our lives

Grab the badge!

Here's how House of Cards works --- there will be a monthly sketch or colour scheme given which covers all 4 weeks.  Each week, we will ask entrants to enter a specific card making style.  
If there is a 5th week within a calendar month, it will be any card making style goes with a photo inspiration.

This month there is a sketch as the theme for the whole of August.

Here's the card I created

The image is a pre-coloured image from The Hobby House - she is a Wee Stamps image by Sylvia Zet but I'm sorry I don't know the exact name.  I simply ran around the edge with a quickie glue pen and dunked the edge in glitter and laid the image on a doily.

The paper is from Kaisercraft's The Lake House stack, it is just lovely and it really took some time for me to decide to actually cut into it, lol !

The pearl embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts, available in white and ivory, this is the white.
The flowers were from my stash and the ribbon is also from The Hobby House.

I hope you will find the time to hop over onto the challenge and take a look what my teamies created.

Thanks for visiting
