The Card Concept #88 {Monochromatic Green}

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.  

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!

The styles are explained HERE.

Now for the design team and their inspiration: 

Julie Gearinger
Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by all of the 
shades of green as well as the touches of 
gold to create a Shabby Chic/Mixed Media card 
(with a bit of Freestyle Collage thrown in)!

Kim Heggins
Kim's Inspiration: I went Clean and Simple on 
my card using lots of beautiful greens. 
I added a bit of gold, like used in the hardware.

Michele K. Henderson
Michele's Inspiration: I love the rich green tones 
and textures along with the feeling of 
travel and memories and created a 
Classy and Elegant Mixed Media card!

Nancy Penir
Nancy's Inspiration: I went with the Clean 
and Layered theme of the all 
green inspiration (with just a touch of aqua!)

Maureen's Inspiration: My Clean and Layered 
card was inspired by all the greens!

Susan's Inspiration: I was inspired by the
softer shades of green and blue 
for my Clean and Simple Mixed Media card.

Angel's Inspiration: Layers and layers of green 
for my Clean and Layered card!!!

Mackie's Inspiration: My inspiration for this 
Classy & Elegant style card were 
those fabulous shades of green!

Our Rules:

1.  Use the challenge inspiration to create a card.
2.  Use one of the challenge styles to create a card (or if you prefer, combine a few styles).
3.  Explain in a post which style or combination of styles you used and what inspired you from our photo.  
4.  Link your post using our linky (please link to the actual post on your blog and not just your blog).
5.  Please try to comment on the cards ahead of you and behind you in the linky.  Everyone loves comments!

The deadline to participate is 
Monday, March 19th at 12:00 pm EDT.

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!
