House of Cards: Embossing and/or Color Inspiration


Hello, all!  Happy 2016! :)  I hope you're all ready for a *NEW* year and *NEW* challenge at House of Cards!  Our first one is to use embossing or be inspired by this color scheme...

a door tones

I added some embossing and then decided to also utilize the colors in the inspiration.  Check out my finished creation...


I used a sentiment from the Stencil in the Roses set from MHKDesigns for this card.  I added some fake roses, rhinestones, and gold elastic and green patterned ribbon trim.  To keep with a textured look, I added some distressed paper, faux stitching, and an embossed paper border.



I really love how this card turned out, and I hope you do, too!  I would love to hear your thoughts, so please leave me a comment below.  I appreciate each and every one of them. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by today to take a peek at my card!  I hope you come and join the fun with us at House of Cards.  Don't forget to check out the AMAZING design team work, too!  They always blow me away with their creativity, and we have some new gals joining us this term who need some extra love!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
