The Card Concept #91 {Blossoms in Blue}

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.  

Before we show our inspiration photo for this challenge, we would like to say farewell to Kim Heggins.  She is stepping down from The Card Concept Design Team and we will miss her for sure!!  We know that we will still see her lovely creations on her blog and wish her all of the best!

Now, on to our {Blossoms in Blue} Challenge!! What will inspire you from this gorgeous photo?  The dress, the flowers, the colors, the fur?  We cannot wait to see what you design!

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: 

Julie Gearinger
Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the beautiful dress- 
the blue and pinks as well as the overall feminine 
feel of the photo to create a Vintage Mixed Media card!

Michele K. Henderson
Michele's Inspiration:I love the contrast of the 
bright pink flowers against the blue and used 
that in my Clean and Layered card.   

Robin Messenheimer
Robin's Inspiration: I found myself inspired by the lovely 
sprigs of cherry blossoms on that beautiful turquoise 
background. The white behind the dress and flowers made 
them pop, so I made it a part of my Clean and Layered card, too.

Nancy Penir
Nancy's Inspiration: Femininity and the pink blooms are 
standouts and against the aqua, layered loveliness! 
All of this inspired by Classy and Elegant card! 

Maureen Plut
Maureen's Inspiration: The colours and branches 
inspired my Shabby Chic card. 

Susan Powell
Susan's Inspiration: I was inspired by all the beautiful 
flowers and the shades of blue on the 
dress for my Classy and Elegant card!

Angel Rivera
Angel is taking a break for this challenge and will be 
with us for the next one.  We hope you will stop
 by her blog and say "hi"!

Mackie Robertson
Mackie's Inspiration:  My Clean and Simple style card 
was inspired by the beautiful dress that 
reminds me of my mom!

Pam Staples
Pam's Inspiration: My Clean and Layered style
 card was inspired by the gorgeous blue 
and the pink floral design.
