Challenge Card

Today's challenge card is for the House of Cards CUTE AND FUN theme and for September we have been given this colour scheme to use - they would like us to use at least three of the colours shown.

I've chosen a scarecrow image from Polkadoodles Seasons CD, coloured with Copics.  Backing paper is from an old Papermania pad and the central borders cut using Spellbinders dies.  Image was cut out using a Nellies die and I've added some flowers from my stash and a sprig of ivy cut with tattered Lace die.  A simple computer greeting was popped onto a stampin Up punched label.  Do take a look at what their design team have come up with and maybe take part yourslf.


  1. Youve got the colours spot on for this challenge the Oriental image and the scallop borders, love your pretty flowers and die..


  2. I love these mauves and orange together Val, I wouldn't have thought to put these together myself, but they do work. Ilove the card as well.

  5. Love the scarecrow card. Come on over and enter for my blog candy...Hugs

  6. Love the way your ivy sprig reflects the pattern in the plate of the inspiration photo. Good thinking of 'cute' with the scarecrow.

  7. Such a super cute scarecrow!!! LOVE the gold accents, too, just like the photo! This is great! Thank you so much for joining us at HOC and can't wait to see what you make for us next! :) Mynn xx

  8. Ok Val you have to stop doing this! Every week I look at your fabulous creations and have to add more to my wishlist from the fantastic things you've used. This week it's more Spellbinders dies. My bank balance just cannot take much more LOL! (Having looked more closely these might be the border dies I bought last week when I bought the Labels 23 you told me about, but haven't yet used - shhhhh!)

    Seriously though, you've created yet another fabulous card - just love your scarecrow - he's so cute! Thank you for joining in our challenge again this week at House of Cards. Looking forward to seeing you again next week.
