Look for another issuer of Secured credit cards, just because you were denied by one company doesn't mean that you will be denied by every company. Do some google searching for lenient Secured card issuers. Just make sure that the card will be reported to all three credit bureaus. Capital One is a company many start with, if they happen to be the one that denied you, do some searching for another lenient lender.
