The Card Concept #96 {Golden Table}

Welcome to The Card Concept! Every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and hope that you will join us and create a card for our challenge gallery.  

So what will inspire you?  
The beautiful flowers, the gold tableware, the coral hues of the blossoms, the table marker or the woodgrain? Or, maybe something else caught your eye?

Create your card based on our inspiration photo and
 please share it with us in our gallery! 




Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.  We want you to have fun with our inspiration!

Our design team members will also be selecting a style (or combination of styles) and will explain how they were inspired by the challenge.  So come and join us!  We'd love you to try your hand at a brand new style of card making or feel free to work in your comfort zone.  It is totally up to you!
