The Card Concept #95 {Owl Cherish Our Friendship}

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.  

Check out our fun inspiration photo for this challenge! What will inspire you?  The owls, patterns, colors, pillows or shapes?  We are looking forward to seeing what inspired you for your card :-)




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!
