NEW Challenge BLOG: House of CARDS!

NEW Challenge BLOG: House of CARDS!

The challenge idea was the brain child of co-owner Mynnette--she wanted to have a reason to practice different card making styles and so the purpose of this challenge is to encourage YOU to branch out and try different card making styles along with her and the fabulous DT they've got there!  They hope that you will learn a lot and that you will participate each week at HOUSE OF CARDS and practice your card making talents.  :)

Here is how their challenge blog works--they will have a monthly color palette or sketch and then each week would like to see a different card making style using those parameters.  

(Okay, I like to make a lot of cards, but even I may not want to do 4 cards for one challenge.
Ha, who am I kidding, this is the perfect challenge for me!!)






Supplies:
Stamps: Technique Tuesdays Cupcakery
Mama Elephant Sentiement from Good Times Set
Ink: MementoTuxedo Black
Impress Cherry Brad
Sizzix Dies
Ribbon
