House of Cards November Challenge

This month the Design team have been challenged to make cards using a sketch. Check out our challenge here. Also, Mynn has done a great video tutorial on Faux Quilting so go take a look if you'd like to find our how to do it!

The patterned papers are from a small pad by First Edition a mix of aqua, yellow and pinks, some papers are embossed and have a gloss finish or sparkly. Lovely! I teamed them up with Brown Sugar card stock from Stampin up.

The large flower is die cut using a Heartfelt die, Vintage Floret which is one of my favourites. A few punched small flowers, a gold bow to finish. Thanks for looking and I hope you're inspired to join in with this challenge!
