May House Of Cards...

Happy May Day!  It’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to make a shaped card or use the colors in the image or both.

May Shaped card colors

I opted to make a shaped card.  I started with a mini stitched scallop circle for my shape and quickly cut my card out.

I’m not fooling when I tell you it’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to either use florals in the corner or the colors or both.  Oh, and try to keep it clean and simple.  I am not sure how I did but I loved what I came up with!

I fussy cut the image and then popped it up on silver paper and added the sentiment.  Then, because I couldn't resist, I chose gold as my card base.  All sorts of shimmery paper!
