April House of Cards ...

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 be inspired by the theme which is to create a CAS card with flowers in the corner or you can use the colour palette or both! Here is the photograph inspiration …

I was inspired by both the theme and the colour choice and here is my card …

A 148mm square card
Okayish for posting
The sequins give a little bling

Luckily for me I can also enter these Challenges

That’s Crafty Challenge Spring into Action 

I think my interpretation of the theme is pushing the boundary of CAS but this is as clean and simple as I can create. Believe me I’ve tried to go completely CAS but it never ever works or looks right for me. I think I am missing the clean and simple gene lol! However I am quite pleased with my card as it looks a little vintage in the clean and simple style so that’s a win for me and I’m keeping my mouth shut now as I might get in trouble otherwise 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
