New Challenge Site - House of Cards

I am very excited to let you all know about a new challenge blog out here in cyberspace. 2 stampers, Mynnette, of On a Stampage and Ruth, of Flower Sparkle, have gotten together to create House of Cards. HOC is a month's worth of challenges broken down by week and style. Check it out:

Week 1: Fun & Cute
Week 2: Clean & Simple
Week 3: Classic & Elegant
Week 4: Shabby & Vintage
Week 5: Your Fave + Photo Inspiration

This challenge site will give you a wonderful opportunity to try all the styles of stamping. I am also quite excited to tell you I am on the Clean & Simple Team!

For this first CAS challenge this month, it is a color challenge.  You need to use at least 3 of the colors.

I sponged my background panel and shook on water [for the "I love this effect" effect].  I punched out 3 hearts [MFT Rustic Hearts] in designer paper, added some sequins and bling, added my computer generated sentiment, cut with MFT Mini Tabs, adhered all to my card base, and my first HOC CAS card is complete!

I hope you check out this fun new challenge site, House of Cards, and play along!  Can't wait to see what you do with the colors.  Remember, keep it clean and simple.

Thanks for stopping by~
