Our Very First Challenge!!

Good morning everyone! 
It's finally here... Our very first challenge over at  House Of Cards!!  WooHoo!

If your not familiar with HOC, here's how our challenge blog works... we will have a monthly color palette or sketch and then each week we'd like to see a different card making style using those parameters.  If there is a 5th Monday in the month, we will have a photo inspiration and you can create using any card making style you'd like!

This month we will be working with this fabulous color palette... please choose at least 3 of these colors to create with! 
...and this week we would like to to see your Fun & Cute cards. 
  My card features the sweet Penny Doll Relaxing image from Bugaboo Stamps!  I think she fits the Fun & Cute style of card perfectly! 
I hope you can join us and be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the adorable work by the other team members and while you're there don't forget to link up for the 
Follower Giveaway!!

That's it for now... I'll be back Friday and Saturday with more cards... busy, busy! :)
Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
