The Card Concept #119 {Beautiful Butterflies}

Welcome back to The Card Concept! We are so thrilled to be back designing along with all of you!

Every two weeks we will post our inspiration photo challenge and hope that you will join us by creating a card for our challenge gallery. 

Our Design Team will choose one Main Winner and at least three Honorable Mentions for each challenge.  

A new change this year is that in addition to posting the winners on our challenge blog, we will be also be posting the winners cards on 
our Facebook page as well as our new Pinterest board.  

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.
