House of Cards Designer's Hop

Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the latest House of Cards challenge by giving the winner a $20 gift certificate to the shop. The Paper Sweeties designers were invited to hop along, so here I am!

  They have a super fun challenge AND tons of great prize opportunities for those of you who join in the fun!!! :)  You should have arrived here from Annette Allen's blog.  If you haven't, please start all the way back at the House of Cards hop post and follow the list found in the body of the hop post!

Today we're creating cards based in this inspiration piece.

I love how the softness of the flowers contrasts the rustic metal basket. The colors are neutral and somewhat monochromatic, but the textures more than make up for the lack of bright vivid colors.

For this reason, my card uses lots of texture. I incorporated canvass, which is framed in metal. The white canvass with the word Love stenciled in black reminded me of the canisters. I used flowers from the Paper Sweeties Hippity Hoppity Easter Wishes stamps and sweet cuts. I distressed the edges to give it that rustic look. Then I filled in some of the dead space with the Tutti Frutti sequins, also available at the shop.



Now it's time to start hoppin'!  Your next stop is Char Cundy!  If you get lost along the way, you can always head back to the original blog hop post -- and don't forget to link up a project at the House of Cards blog after completing the hop for an extra chance to win a mystery prize from one of our fabulous sponsors, too!
