House of Cards August Challenge

Hello Everybody!

New month-new challenge at the House of Cards!  This month you can use this lovely color palette or use twine or do both.  I chose twine.  :)

Use Twine and/or Colors

Some friends of ours were married a few weeks ago.  Etiquette says I have 6 months to get them a present.  Whew!  So here is their card:

I am super happy with how this turned out.  The heart stamp is from Great Impressions and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.  I used platinum embossing powder from Ranger on the hearts and Pixie Pink ink from Stampin Up for the sentiment.  My sentiment was a little off so I placed the key to kind of making it look more centered. ;)  Shhhh don't tell!

And then there is the pink twine.  To make this white cardstock panel work, I used pop dots.  

I hope you will join our fun challenge.  :)

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:

Until next time my friends...have a great twine (lol) ;)

This is darling, Katy! I LOVE the way you used the twine to divide your image and sentiment portions of the card--the key is the perfect detail for a love card, too! Sending HUGS! :) Mynn xx
