CC#63-November 30- Love & Joy

Welcome to The Card Concept!   Our inspiration photo challenge is a bi-weekly challenge and we hope that you will create a card in one of the styles we have offered here.    

Before we proceed to the inspiration photo, just a reminder that this will be our last challenge of 2016 and we will be back on January 4, 2017 with a brand new challenge as well as some changes :-) 

One of the changes for the New Year is that several of our designers are stepping down from the Design Team and we are so sad to say “goodbye” to Sandie Munro, Alison Barclay, Kerin Sylvester and Lilian Forsyth.  Many of these ladies have been with the team from the beginning of The Card Concept Challenge and we have loved designing with them over the years! 

I know that they have inspired us with their gorgeous creations and we wish them all of the best in the New Year!  Thank you so much ladies for all of your hard work and dedication to The Card Concept!

But, the good news is that we will have a few new designers joining our team in 2017 and will introduce them to you with our next challenge as well as a bit of a surprise!  

Now onto our fun “Love and Joy” Challenge:



Isn’t this photo just so warm and cozy? Each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge and has designed a card in one of the style categories!

Please 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 love.

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!

The styles are explained HERE.
