We have a fun House of Cards challenge for you this month.  You can choose to use texture on your card or be inspired by the colors of the photo or mix it up and do both.

I colored up a fabulous freebie from Marianne Walker of Copic fame.  Super easy one and she even has basic instructions.  Thanks, MW!  I diecut the panel and added the WPlus9 sentiment.  I like white space but it was so very plain jane that I decided to use my Paper Studio leaf embossing folder on the whole thing.  Love!!!!!

If you haven't already, check out the fabulous makes of my design teammates!
