Buzzing Around The House Of Cards


     Summer has definitely arrived at the House Of Cards with a bright and breezy photo prompt, we would like to see you use Stripes and/or Colours inspired by our photo.
     The picture made me think of bees, it was the pattern of the umbrella that struck me first so I set about finding a bee image. Now you might think that was easy.....it wasn't!  I have a few (ha,ha) stamps and dies but not one single bee that was suitable, so I resorted to the internet and it's mass of free images. A bee stamp and die are now on my wishlist. With my bee image printed and die cut I just had to make a background to show the stripes.
     What better than sun rays to provide the yellow stripes. After a search through my stencils nothing much inspired me so I went through some dies and found the prefect one. I die cut some strong card and used that as a stencil to work three shades of Distress ink through.
     The striped panel didn't look right on a white card blank so I coloured the edges yellow, then stuck the panel flat and the bee die cut on foam pads. It's a very simple card with a sweet and simple message so I have decided not to add anything else to it.
     The House Of Cards challenge runs all month so please pop over and join us, all you have to do is make a card inspired by our photo prompt.
