Challenge #12 - Use a Nautical Theme

Welcome to The Card Concept. This week we are excited to welcome Colleen Dietrich to our design team! Welcome, Colleen!!! Karen Davis has decided to step down to focus on work. Thank you Karen for your gorgeous creations and teamwork! You will be missed!

This week we have a theme for you to try! You must use the theme and create your card in one of the styles of the designers. 

The styles are explained HERE.

Clean & Simple

Clean & Graphic
Traditional nautical colors, including the navy & white in the photo, were the source of inspiration for my card. 

Clean & Layering

Kerin Sylvester

The anchors in the photo really caught my eye, so I used them as my inspiration.

Shabby Chic

Narelle Farrugia 

I love a nautical themed challenge so I've gone to town on every nautical element I could find!

Freestyle Collage

Cathy Weber

I was in die-cut heaven while making this card!

Classy & Elegant

The cool, soothing neutrals in the photo really inspired me!
