House of Cards Classic and Elegant for May

It's time for another two week challenge over at the House of Cards Challenge Blog.  This is the Classic & Elegant or CAS challenge.  We are using this photo and/or color as our inspiration!

Here's my card for the challenge.

I stamped this Club Scrap "Take Wing" image on Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper with Ranger Black Archival and clear embossed it.    I used Squeezed Lemonade, Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord Distressed inks for the background colors.  I cut it out and mounted it on Lavender DP is from G45 Secret Garden and then Yellow DP from Bella Blvd.  Sentiment is from the Club Scrap "Take Wing" stamp set. Come on over and join us at the House of Cards Challenge blog for some fun!

I am also entering this in the Cards in Envy: Winged Things Challenge. 

Happy Crafting!
