January 1, 2017 House of Card New Year challenge


I decided to stay with Mynn Kitchen DT on The House of Cards - because #1 she is a great person - #2 she designs awesome digital images, and #3 I seem to do better if I am challenged a bit.


This is what the photo inspired me to create and I think it captured the scene pretty well.  The stamps I used - cabin is fromRepeat Impressions 2911-I Log Cabin and the sentiment is from Stampendous. The rest of the scene is created with die cuts - tree scene is from Tim Holtz, the white pine trees are from Memory Box and the hill sides are from AMuse.  White gel pen, crystal Stickles and embossing powder create the snowy scene. What a fun card to make.

Why not join our challenge this month at The House of Cards and make a card  using the photo/color inspiration and enter our challenge this month,  House of Cards current challenge.

I pulled this up and was freaking out because I hadn't gotten around to scheduling my post for THTSB for RI and thought I was late. Had to look at the calendar! LOL. Great card!
