Retro Rubber Challenge #44...

Thanks For The August House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new challenge at the House of Cards! This month our challenge is to have you use twine and/or these lovely colors on a card for us!

August 2016 Twine and or colors

It took some doing but I came up with a card I liked that incorporated both the colors and the twine. I started by stamping the large flower in sweet blush with autumn rose accents and the smaller flower (which you can’t see very well due to the sentiment) in autumn rose with sweet blush accents. I added the centers in bright yellow. hoc aug 1 (541x640)

To create my card, I die cut this dotted circle around the flowers then added the sentiment. For the sentiment, I stamped on white and used the washi label punch to create. I added a bit of twine because I was just feeling that it went well with the images and colors. hoc aug 2 (640x427)

I put everything together using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Be sure to play along with us this month! Just link up your card HERE!

What a gorgeous card, Jane! I adore the CAS feel, the fun layering, and the way you used the twine to frame both sides of the sentiment! Sending HUGS! :) Mynn xx

Absolutely stunning, Jane! Love the CAS - something I don't do very often because I love layers too much, lol - and I also love the way you used the twine!

Yes! The twine is a lovely touch as is the circle of dots--really subtle but effective!


Cute, clean and simple!
