House of Cards March Challenge ...

Good Morning! Happy Super Bowl Sunday to all of you!

It's the 1st of the month, so I have a new House of Cards challenge to share with you!

For the month of March, we would love to see Enamel Dots on your project!

My nephew's birthday is fast approaching so I made a masculine birthday card for this months challenge.

I pulled out old stamp set from A Muse Studio's called Enjoy the Ride. After stamping the bike, I added some distress ink along the bottom to represent a bike path, and added the sentiments. I added black enamel dots to the center of the bike wheels, and then in the two corners. My design was inspired by the SSW2 Challenge #201.

Make sure you hop on over to the House of Cards Challenge Blog for all of the details for entering our Monthly Challenges, and for some FUN Tutorials on how to make your own Enamel Dots! I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
