Card Concept #44 {Festive Glory}

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 are getting "Festive" and hope you will share a holiday inspired card!

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.

I was inspired by the overall scene, although my scene is a little more realistic since my Christmas usually ends with one exhausted mom!

The warm, inviting traditional Christmas colors inspired me!

Shabby Chic

 I found inspiration this week from the homespun charm in this photo -- the gingham patterns, the rusty snowflake, the red & green color palette and all the twinkle & sparkle!

Deanne Kay
My inspiration came from the colours, stars, and the overall traditional feel!

I was inspired by all the texture in the photo.

I love the little red barn in the painting on the wall, and the beautiful Christmas greens.
