House of Cards

 
 
May 2018
Shaped card and/or Colors

  
Time for another fun monthly challenge at House of Cards, you can go with a
shaped card or the colors. I enjoy shaped cards so went with a Z-fold card:
 
 


My husband will be officially retired the day this post goes live so I made a Z-fold card so I
could incorporate all the fun things that we hope to enjoy more of in his retirement. You will
notice the skier is not a stamped image, I took a picture of him and shrunk it and printed it on
cardstock.  I think he will be happy with this card.
 
I hope you will join in this fun challenge.  Details on the House of Cards blog.
