House of Cards

We are into the second month with House of Cards and this time we have a sketch to follow and as this is the first week of the month we are back to CUTE AND FUN.  I've chosen an image from Polkadoodles - well two actually because I've combined the girl with the fence because I thought she needed something to be sitting on.  Backing paper is from a free pad I acquired recently and an EK Success punch was used for the border strip.  The simple addition of a couple of punched flowers with card candy centres; a computer greeting and there we have an approximation of the sketch.  Do take a look to see how their design team members have interpreted this by folllowing the link above.


  1. This is a delight how you always use your odd scraps and freebies! Thank you for sharing with us at the House of Cards Cute and Fun challenge this week. Suzanne xx

  2. I love the way you have the girl sat of the fence, I never would have guessed they were not one digi. Such a beautiful card too.

  5. Hello Val
    Great card, and I love how you have combined the two stamps they look great together.
    Thanks for joining in again at HOC we appreciate the support.

  6. I agree that she needs to be sitting on something - perfect with the fence! I like the way the frilly border to her dress is echoed by your pink lacey matting under the image panel.

  7. I thought that was one stamp Val, you have merged them seamlessly! Beautifully coloured in:)

  8. Love the way you've added the fence Val - she definitely needs something; can't quite figure out how you could have used her otherwise! Beautiful colouring.
