House of Cards: Fruit/Drink Image and/or Color Inspiration


Hi, friends!  Welcome to another term with the House of Card challenge blog!  I am going to be taking a little step back in the next few months while I finish my degree, but the fabulous Judy will be taking care of everything until I am able to return to this challenge full time!  I am SUPER excited to share the card I made for today's inspiration with you.  Our challenge is to...

Make a card with a fruit/drink image and/or use these colors~

I went fruity, and I chose a different color scheme, but I wanted to make a card that screamed summer picnic to me.  That meant using a watermelon image for me!  Take a peek at my card...


I stamped the watermelon image then die cut it.  I added it to some faux stitched panels and added a sentiment, a bit of glitter, and a few sequins.  The stamps, dies, papers, and inks are all from The Stamps of Life and linked below!


I totally LOVE the way this turned out!  The bright pink and green really POP off all that white space.  It's been a while since I went CAS, so this was tons of fun.  I hope you like my card, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take a bit of time to come and play along with us at House of Cards.  Don't forget to stop by the other DT members' blogs for even MORE amazing inspiration--they always blow me away!  I'll be back later this month with more crafty posts!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
