Lots Of Lavender...

January House Of Cards...

It’s a new month and a new challenge at House of Cards!  This month is mixed media and/or use the colors in the image.  I attempted to do a bit of both!

January Mixed Media Colors

I started with three quarter inch strips of coral, green and yellow.  I die cut a shape and then used embossing paste and a stencil to create a harlequin pattern on pink paper. hoc january 1 (583x640)

I added the sentiment and attached everything to a card base of crumbcake. hoc january 2 (640x542)
