Clean and Simple, Classic and Elegant??


If I am confused, I can't imagine what Mynette our fearless leader at House of Cards is going to think.
I am a member of the CAS team, but my oh my this card looks classic and elegant too! This week's challenge was a photo inspiration. 
Now, are you like me? Give me a color challenge, sketches anything but photos! I break out in a sweat, my hands get clammy and my creative juices just stop flowing. I think I get to literal and can't go with the flow.

Here is this month's photo challenge. The part that struck me was the wall paper. I used that as my jumping off point. I grabbed my Golden Glitz ink and this background stamp  by Impression Obsession. It is so difficult to really appreciate the gold leaf on the yellow background and difficult to photograph. Try clicking on the picture to enlarge it. The rest as they say is history.
A CAS and CAE card!

I hope you have enjoyed our first month of challenges at HOC. The work presented by all of you this month has been amazing, awesome and all-inspiring!

Please continue to join us in the fun for August.

I do not think you need to worry, your card is gorgeous and you take your inspiration wherever it leads you with a photo. Well Done.

I think we quite often end up combining styles when making CAS cards - there is often an element of cute or classy in it - as long as the CAS comes through I think we're good and this is definately all good!
