August House of Cards Challenge!

This month the House of Cards challenge is a sketch. I always start of with the sketch in mind and it ends up looking different to what I originally had in my head! I just dont like to do the obvious!

So here's my card for the Design Team. the centre panel is a brushed gold card stock and very subtle. I think it goes well with the pink and cream without being to lary! I tore patterned paper from my Bo Bunny Vintage Lace pack (still my fave) and layered them onto the front to emanate the stripes in the sketch (just about!) The sentiment motif is Papertrey Ink.


  1. Another card that I SUPER DUPER LOVE! This is SO pretty and soft--and that bird makes me happy! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

  2. Hi Pat! I hope your vacation is going well. I love the soft colors and how you switched up the sketch. Have a great day!

  3. Love the soft and feminine distress on your card, Pat! Darling card!
