House of Cards February Challenge ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well.  It’s a new month which means a new House of Cards Challenge.  February’s Challenge is Shaped Cards and here is mine …

So cute and so pink! 
Love the layered look 
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Addicted to Stamps Challenge Anything Goes with a Stamp
As You Like It Challenge One or Multi Layers
I naturally create CAS cards but I’m trying different styles
I opted to add multi layers to this card because CAS did not look right.
My current style is experimenting with different mediums, tools or textures.
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #156 Punches and/or Dies
DRS Designs Thursday Challenge Sparkle & Shine
In The Pink Challenge #86 Bling it On
 Pixie’s Snippets Playground #214

This was an awesome snippet and very old stash buster!  I am so happy that I had several shaped cards that I could use.  I don’t make shaped card blanks because the finished result is not beautiful or good – my bag – it is what it is lol!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x

Hi Karen, a lovely handbag style card to share with us at AYLI this week. The theme was to tell us what you prefer to make, a CAS style card or a multi layered one, which you have done beautifully.
