House of Cards May Challenge. . . . . .


Good afternoon Duckadees. Hope you are all well? 

Yes, back again with my DT offering for the House of Cards May Challenge which is based on this photo for inspiration. . . . . .


I concentrated on the purple, lilac and cream and of course, the birdies !!!

Now, the base card is 6x6 cream card which is topped with purple, then lilac, then purple card layers, which had the 2nd largest SB Scalloped Ovals cut from the centres of each.
The decorative top paper is a sheet from the First Edtion New Bloom 6x6 pad as it has the purple, lilac and cream leaves.
I cut the oval from the centre of this too and put the oval cut out to one side. The other piece, I put through the SB M-Bossibilities Patchwork embossing folder and popped it on top of the other layers.


I then put the unembossed oval piece through the gap and stuck it to the base and added two purple and lilac heat embossed Hobbycutz birdies onto the branches of the design.
I made a frame with the scalloped ovals from lilac card and foam padded this over the aperture (sorry, I seem to have done quite a few of these framed aperture cards lately).
Bling, organza bow and sentiment added and voila!!!



Hope that you like my interpretation of the photo and that you will pop over to HoC to see what my team mates have come up with and, of course, to join in yourself.

Have a great week folks.
