HOC: July Classic & Elegant Challenge

Hi, friends!  I am back with another challenge today at my newest challenge blog--House of Cards!  This challenge is a little bit different but I think you'll like the idea behind it!  Go pop on over for all the details.  Today's challenge is a card making style/color challenge.  We'd like to see some Classic & Elegant cards made with...

This color scheme~
(When playing along, please use at least three.)

Here's my card~

I've used stamps by Hero Arts, liquid pearls by Ranger, white heat embossing powder by Stampendous!, dry embossing folders by Stampin' Up! (hexagonal) and Sizzix, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I hope you will join us this week and each week as we all practice our card making talents!  Don't forget to leave a little love with the other amazing card makers on my Classic & Elegant DT as well!!!  HUG and happy stamping friends!

Hey girl!!! We've been on vacay and I'm trying to get caught up with my visits. These are some pretty pretty flowers!! You've been a busy girl, so many pretty cards while I was away!!! I REALLY like your friend card with the fabulous colors and sweet red cherries. But the pretty little red polka dot flower card with the strips of wash is swoon worthy too!!
