House of Cards Classic & Elegant Challenge for November

We are in our fifth month here at House of Cards!  We love seeing you push your limits and trying out new card making styles!  We hope you're loving it as much as we are!

It's the third week of the month, so we need you to create something in the Classic & Elegant style. Classic & Elegant style can be defined as:   "Think a greeting card from Hallmark.  These are not really cards that fit into any other category.  They usually feature floral or other classic elements.  Less embellishments than Shabby & Vintage or Fun & Cute, but more than CAS."

This is our photo/color inspiration for the month.

And here is my card!

I used Gelatos to stamp the image.  
Stamps, ribbon and cardstock are from Club Scrap Bold Blooms Club Stamp kit August 2012.

So be inspired by the photo, the colors, or both!  If you go with the colors, please choose at least 3.  Let your imagination take flight!  Some of us are in autumn, some in spring, so we tried to find a combo that would work for both seasons.  And perhaps even holiday cards?!

So hop on over to the House of Cards and play along with us!

Happy Crafting!
