HOC Die Cut Challenge

     This months challenge at House Of Cards is to use dies or punches to create your card.
     My contribution was inspired by my Granny who has been gone for ten years now, but is often in my thoughts. I have a tiny Wedgewood trinket box that belonged to her, that is what inspired this card.
     I covered the front of a square white card blank with thin blue card, overlapping the folded edge by about half an inch and fixing it on the back, I find this makes for a neater look.
     I have used a mix of dies from Spellbinder and X-Cut, all cut in white card. the small motifs are the leftovers from the corners. They are not quite as delicate as Wedgewood but I hope it gives the general idea.
     I have added some pearls to the corners to add a little shine to the card.
     We are changing our format a little next month at HOC, you will be able to see all cards made by the design team at the beginning of the month, with a reminder each week of the different styles we make. The challenge will still run for a month so you will have lots of time to come and join us.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Simply Create Too - Shop Your Craft Room (Everything is over a year old, inc card!)
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes/Cards Only
