Bowl of Cheerios

Hello Everyone,

House of Cards is starting a new challenge today! I have been waiting for awhile to work on this card (I will explain later). Here is my card for today, enjoy...


A simple geometric card with a message of self-confidence.
  __________________________________

Add sequins and/or use this color inspiration~

The embossed background is perfect for the Cheerios.
They are uniform and blend in nicely.

The card would have been ambiguous if it weren't for the spoon.
I guess you could infer that the circles were Fruit Loops but the spoon, for me, sealed the deal.
Challenges Entered:
CAS on Sunday: Challenge #107- Use Glitter or Sequins


I drive my kiddos to school every day, and every day we pass by a local mechanic shop. Their sign on the corner always has caught our attention. Why? Well, instead of advertising specials, or rates they have words of wisdom. One morning I noticed the sign has changed- which is always a treat for us. This saying was on the sign and I thought 'Wow, that would make a great card!'. A few weeks later the challenges came out for HOC and it seemed like a perfect fit. 


That should do it for me!! I hope this post entices you to join our challenge this month at House of Cards. I would like to thank you so much for dropping by TheGrandStampede and do hope you will return soon. Until then, have a great day, take care, and happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna
