House of Cards - Add a Bow (or Bows!)

I'm a work at night person (who enjoys sleeping), but I love mornings. There's so much promise at the beginning of the day...and I want to start the week with a high

Happy Monday!

Today I'm happy to share with you some good news - Mynn of the House of Cards challenge invited me to join their Classic Design Team! It's a great, easy going challenge with lots of inspiration. A monthly challenge with a new style represented each week. Something for everyone! Check out the DT's blogs in the right left fab!

This month's challenge is ADD A BOW (OR BOWS!). Here's my card...

We've got dry embossing on the background, out of the box stamped & Copic colored image (colors coming soon!), thermal embossing on a tiny punched tab and, of course, bows - 2 of them!

Link up to our challenge HERE. Be sure to visit the HOC blog each week to enjoy the different styles.

Hope you don't mind the short post. I've had a busy weekend and I've got an even busier week coming up (more details and crafty posts coming soon!). So glad I was able to work a little coloring in!

Inky hugs,
