House Of Cards Challenge September

Hello there!

Our challenge to you this month at
is to use text and/or the colors
from the inspiration photo below.

Back side, opened up and laying flat

I used various old stamp sets from Stampin' Up!
as well as retired ink and card stock colors
(Bravo Burgundy, Apricot Appeal and Barely Banana) 

I added a little bit of Stickles diamond glitter glue,
Crystal Effects and heat embossing with Iridescent Ice
 embossing powder for fun shimmer. 

The card design is not my own.
It is something I saw earlier this year, 
but do not remember whose design
it was or if there is even a name for this type of card. 

I cut my card stock front two inches wide
then added another two inch wide piece at the bottom.
They are attached together with the vertical panel.
I could have put a piece of acetate between,
but was afraid it would get staticy and attract dust
(cat hair!).

Thanks for looking :)
