Challenge #15 - Colour Challenge

Welcome to The Card Concept. 

Before we get to the challenge we have some news to share! This is our last challenge with the talented Lee Ann Barrett. She is leaving our team but we know she will be back, playing along with us! Thank you for all of your hard work, Lee Ann! You will be missed!

We also want to let you know how excited we were by all the submissions for our Wild Card team! WOW! We had MANY applications and could only choose 5! Thank you so much for applying and we hope you will apply again in October.

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

Clean & Simple

Deanna Dean

Add a little pop to your cards by gently curling the edges of your leaves and flowers.

Clean & Graphic

Ardyth Percy-Robb

Big blocks of colour  work as 'white' space and keep your card feeling clean and graphic!

Clean & Layering

Kay Miller

Those fresh colors reminded me of cool water and a warm breeze, perfect for my little sail boat.

Shabby Chic

Besides the colors of aqua, lime and white (swoon!), I was inspired by the lacey, floral pattern on the candle holders and created a little garden scene!

Freestyle Collage

Classy & Elegant

Lee Ann Barrett

Natural images seemed fitting for these colors and the lacy candle holders inspired me to use a doily
 and other 'lacy' images.

Our Rules
  1. Use the Challenge to create a card.
  2. Choose one of the design team "styles" to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary.
  3. Explain in your post which style you used.
  4. Link up your blog post here, not your whole blog.
