House of Cards Summer Blog Hop!

Hello Everybody!

I am so excited!  It's an inspiration photo and blog hop time at House of Cards!  There are great sponsors and prizes and there is a great photo to be inspired by!

If you are hopping you should have gotten here from Katarzyna Ewa's blog! 

Here is the photo...Look at those colors!  And the beautiful place setting...and the Flamingos!  I love Flamingos! :)

I was totally inspired by the bright happy colors.  Also, there are flowers on the table and gold silverware.  Can I come to this party?  ;)

For my card I used A Day for Daisies digi stamp Flowers in Bottles.  I used Copic markers to color it.  
The sentiment is from Fiskars and the gold pearls on the left are texture gems from Faber Castell.

So here are the details...

This hop will run FROM June 1ST AT 6:00 AM CST THROUGH June 15TH AT NOON CST,  ANY CARD STYLE is welcome and we've got a gorgeous photo inspiration for your crafting enjoyment!

So it's time to get hoppin'!  But first we've got some fabulous sponsors to share with you!  Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :)  After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!
