The Card Concept #98 {Pastel Party}

Welcome to The Card Concept! Every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and hope that you will join us by creating 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: 

Tangii's Inspiration: I was inspired by the black & white 
"zig-zag-y" pattern in the back along with the sherbet colors 
for my Freestyle Collage card.

Vicki's Inspiration: I wanted to try a softer color
 palette for my Clean and Elegant Christmas Card.

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the black and 
white graphics as well as the pastel rainbow
 colors to create a somewhat "Clean" Mixed Media card!

Michele K. Henderson
Michele's Inspiration: What's a better inspiration than a 
pastel unicorn? I added one to this Clean and Simple 
stamped and die cut card.

Kim Lackenbach
Kim's Inspiration: For my Clean and Layered card, I was inspired
 by the rainbow and unicorn words. 

Nancy's InspirationThere's a party going on with our
 inspiration photo. I went with the celebration theme for 
my not so "Clean" but Layered card!

Maureen Plut
Maureen's Inspiration:   My Clean and Simply Layered (LOL!) 
card was inspired by the colours and pattern.

Susan's Inspiration: I was inspired by the background, 
the banners and the words 'ice creams for sale' 
for my Clean and Layered card.

Angel's Inspiration: Rainbows, hearts and unicorns, oh my!
 I was inspired to create a fun Freestyle Collage card!

Mackie's Inspiration: Pastels and rainbows were the 
inspiration for my Clean & Layered card!

Marcie Sharp
Marcie's Inspiration: The gorgeous black and white graphic 
background paired with the rainbow and hearts 
inspired my Mixed Media card.
