HOC January Challenge 2015

Happy New Year!
Can you believe it's 2015? Where did 2014 go?
So I guess it's "out with the old and in with the new"!
The new year means a new term at 
House of Cards.
We have some new design team members and
 some great new challenges coming your way.

This month the challenge is to use glitter and/or the given color combo/photo inspiration.

I chose to use a little bit of glitter and the color combo.

I immediately thought "peacock" when I saw these colors
and knew this Jolee's boutique sticker was perfect for this card.
I framed the peacock with a Spellbinders die cut and added some
stickles. The background DP is from Hot Off the Press.
The greeting was computer generated and cut with a
Taylored Expressions die.

I hope you link up your creation over at
House of Cards.
You have all month to do so and be sure and check out new inspiration from
 different DT members each week throughout the month.
