House of Cards October ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I’m back with my House Of Cards post today and for this month once again we have a choice for you. You can either use the colour palette or be inspired by the photograph or you can make a clean and simple card, there are lots of options for you. I have been inspired by ….. 

And here is my card …

A 145mm square clean and simple card
All the details
The mean pumpkin
A final look

Oh my goodness for me this theme was really difficult this month. The colour palette was not my comfort zone, the theme is not my comfort zone and Clean and Simple is a struggle, to put it mildly. After six attempts ended up in the bin I popped onto Ebay and purchased a pumpkin stamp. I know that stamp will be useful for any Halloween themed projects I want to create in the future. I could not get my head around the limited colour palette and theme this month. Believe me I tried, lol, but in the end it was easier to purchase the stamp so that I could create a CAS card for this month’s theme. Lol I am not a CAS card maker, in fact I don’t like creating CAS or one layer cards but I do it because it challenges me. I just didn’t expect to be so challenged by the theme for my DT post 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
