House of Cards Classic & Elegant September Challenge

I'm back with another card for the House of Cards Challenge blog with a Classic & Elegant card theme for week three of our challenge.  Remember week one of every month is Cute & Fun, week two is Clean & Simple, week three is Classic & Elegant and week four is Shabby & Vintage.  Come join us for any of those weeks or all of them!  This month at House of Cards we are using this color pallet.

vintage hues

I loved the vintage purple hues in this but I was able to sneak in a little of the rustic orange into my card.

I used my Club Scrap July 2013 Wisteria Club Stamp kit to make this card.  I used Tim Holtz Distressed inks for the background  in Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Gathered Twigs, and Spiced Marmalade.  the large stamp was stamped with Range Archival Ink in Deep Purple.  I hope you take some time to play with these great colors and join us at House of Cards Challenge Blog.

Happy Crafting
