The Card Concept #83 {Parisian Postale}

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: 

Ruth Andrews 
Ruth's Inspiration: Red, white, blue and kraft 
for those brown paper packages tied up 
with string for a Clean and Layered look.

Becca's Inspiration: I loved the kraft and red together
and was definitely inspired by the postal theme
to create this Clean and Layered Mixed Media
Valentine’s Day Card.

Vicki Finger
Vicki's Inspiration: Seing the photo made me think 
of a stamp I had in my collection that I wanted to 
use with a slightly different spin on the colors 
for my Clean and Layered card.

Julie Gearinger
Julie's Inspiration- I was inspired by the colors, 
twine and French Script for my Clean and Layered 
Mixed Media card.

Kim Heggins
Kim's Inspiration: I was inspired by the colors and the 
Eiffel Towers on the postage for a Clean and Simple look. 

Michele K. Henderson
Michele's Inspiration:I was inspired by postal images 
and colors for my Freestyle Collage Parisian Postale look!

Nancy Penir
Nancy's Inspiration: All the look of a postcard from another era. A bit of mixed media and lots of layers for my 
Mixed Media Shabby Chic card!

Maureen Plut
Maureen's Inspiration: I took the inspiration 
literally to create my Clean and Layered 
birthday card...Viva La France!

Susan Powell
Susan's Inspiration: I was inspired by the colors 
for my Clean and Simple card (I couldn't 
resist a little humor too).

Angel Rivera
Angel's Inspiration: The color combination, twine 
and lettering on the packages inspired my 
Clean and Simple card.

Mackie Robertson
Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the 
red and kraft colors to create my 
Classy & Elegant Style card!

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!

This will be our final challenge for 2017 to allow our Design Team time with their families over the holidays!

We will be back on January 10th with our first challenge for 2018!  We hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

The deadline to participate is 
Monday, December 18th at 12:00 pm EST.

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!
