Month One: Photo Inspiration + Any Style Goes!!!

Hello, friends!  A HUGE thank you to everyone who has participated in our first month of challenges here at House of Cards!  We've had such fun seeing all the amazing talent out there and can't wait to see you grow as card makers in all the variety of styles that there are out in the world of crafting!

Well, it's such a great week here at House of Cards!  Not only is this our first month of challenges, but this is also our first ever 5th week challenge!  We've got a photo inspiration for your crafting pleasure!

Here it is~

Since this is the 5th week,

You get to choose which style you want to use so please make a card using the photo as inspiration in a Cute & Fun, CAS, Classic & Elegant or Shabby & Vintage style and link it up below.  If you'd like to know how we define the different card styles here at House of Cards we have this very helpful tab up at the top to enlighten you!  There will be inspiration from all of our DTs throughout the week, each style will be featured as follows:
  • Cute & Fun on Tuesday
  • CAS on Wednesday
  • Classic & Elegant on Thursday
  • Shabby & Vintage on Friday
We hope that you join in the fun here with us!

Just a reminder that there's a couple of days left to enter our Followers Giveaway - the details are on this tab up at the top - good luck!

Please follow our HOUSE RULES when you participate in our challenges to make things fair for all participants and to help the DT out when commenting, etc.  Here they are:
  • You must follow the weekly card style and theme in the project that you choose to link up.
  • You may join in other challenges other than ours, but please keep it to a maximum of 10 (ours and 9 more).
  • You must link up with the POST address, not your entire blog address.
  • Please link back to our challenge in your entry post so that others know where to come to play along!
  • Do not expect a comment if you have Word Verification turned on. We do our best to comment, but it takes quite a bit of time to figure out what in the world you're supposed to type when Word Verification is used. Please opt for comment moderation as a most wonderful alternative!
  • HAVE FUN!

Great idea to have a photo for inspiration. I have to re-think now 'cos I got ahead of myself and made a card in a style I like but did it using the 'colours of the month'. Back to the drawing board I guess - never mind. Look forward to seeing the DT ideas
