House of Cards September Classic & Elegant

It's time for another challenge at the House of Cards Challenge Blog and the Classic & Elegant team is posting this week.  This month our challenge is a photo/color inspiration...


Here's my card from the inspiration...

I loved the weathered boards in the inspiration photo.  I found this cute weathered boards DP from Basic Grey "herbs & honey" and the cute fruit advertisement in my Apron Strings August All Year Cheer Card Kit.  The canning jar is from Stampin'Up! Perfectly Preserved (retired) and the sentiment is Stampin'Up! Hostess Hello There.  Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Come join us at the House of Cards Blog for this month's challenge!  

I am also entering this in Darnell's latest NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) Challenge as I had never used the stamps in the Hostess Hellos set or the DP and Ribbon.  Click on the picture below if you want to play in her challenge.  She has some great prizes!

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Happy Crafting!
