MHKDesigns + House of Cards: Pretty Girls + Twine


Hi, everyone!  Happy August!  It's time for another challenge at House of Cards, and I've used some fun products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop for my project today!  I'm actually giving you a SNEAK PEEK at a few products that I have coming later this month to the store. ;)  The challenge this month is to add baker's twine and/or use this color inspiration...


I chose to add baker's twine!  I did use some of the colors from the inspiration in my creation, but the focus was more on the twine for me.  Take a peek at my card...


I used papers from the Twinkle Twinkle Little Dots (coming soon!) and French Country paper packs.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bottles set (also soon to be released!), and the image is from the Butterfly Wisdom set.  Some rhinestones were added to tie in more of the pink from the twine, as well as a fun floral button.


A bit of faux stitching added a little more texture to the focal panel, and I decided to mat everything in white and add them to a kraft card base.  I think that these very different patterns really worked out well together!  What do you think?  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! :)
