The Card Concept #54 {Spring Flowers}

Welcome to The Card Concept

Before we get to this week's challenge, we are sad to announce that this is our last challenge with Sheri Gilson and Shannon McComb. Both ladies are stepping down to pursue other crafty avenues and we wish them luck! Thank you for all of your hard work ladies, you will be missed!

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!

This week we are focusing on flowers or Spring...your cards do not need to be can be inspired by the floral in general or the colours!

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.

The designers have entered their cards below and they have explained the style they used and the way they were inspired...

Thank you to Wendy Ramlakhan for being our Guest this month!
