The Card Concept #47 {Floral Elegance}

Welcome to The Card Concept! Each week we offer up a challenge for you to try, and we hope that you will create a card in one of the styles we have offered here.  The team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge!  So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" of card making or work in your comfort zone, it is totally up to you! 

We hope you are inspired by our inspiration photo-YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE the exact colours...they are just listed to inspire you!

Before we get to this week's challenge, we have some news to share. Debbie Marcinkiewicz has decided to step down from the team to focus on her thriving business, Paper Sweeties! We will miss her SO much! Thank you, Debbie for all of your hard work and dedication!

We also have a Guest with us this week...Lesley Croghan is filling in for the Shabby Chic designers until February when a new Shabby Chic Designer will be joining us! 

Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

The styles are explained HERE.
