The Card Concept #112 {Cottage Florals}

Welcome to The Card ConceptEvery 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 show our new inspiration photo, we want to take a moment to say farewell 
to our sweet Kim Lackenbach!  
Due to family obligations, she is stepping down from our Design Team and we will miss her greatly!  Thank you Kim for all of your wonderful inspiration and we wish you all the best in the future!

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.
