House of Cards January Challenge

                                 

 
To use glitter and/or be inspired by this~
glittered (blues)
 
  
Happy New Year to all!
 
I get to announce today that I am part of the House of Cards design team and I hope you will join the first challenge of the year at House of Cards which runs for the entire month. You will also want to see the creations of my talented teammates, more pictures will be posted each week!
 
This photo was such a fun inspiration for the House of Cards January Challenge.  I went with both the inspiration and a bit of glitter.    My main image, Our Daily Bread Lighthouse, Papers (MME,. along with my choice of Copics ( C00, C3,C5,C7,E30,E33,B000,B05,BG10,BG23,Y21) were inspired by the colors and of course I had to add glitter with my Recollections shell brad and also my Wink of Stella brush on the ocean and sand!  I choose a Joy Fold for my card base (see bottom photo for a side view).

A few fun challenges:
Cute Card Thursday #164: Anything Goes
Loves Rubber Stamps #132: Something Old (brad) & Something New (MME Papers)
Mod Squad Challenge Blog: Special Folded Card
Through the Craft room Door: Anything Goes
