The Card Concept #101 {Rustic Fall}

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. 

Before we post our inspiration photo, we would like to say 
farewell to one of our Designers, Vicki Finger!  

Vicki is stepping down from the DT in order to spend more time with her family.  We want to take this time to thank Vicki for all of her hard work and for sharing her talent with us at The Card Concept! She is planning on playing along with us in the future (when she is able) and we will look forward to seeing her artwork in our gallery.

If you have a chance, stop by Vicki's blog and wish her farewell. 
 Hugs and best wishes Vicki!!

Now, on to our #101 Rustic Fall Challenge!! 

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 designers 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.
