The Card Concept #121 {Adventure Awaits}

Welcome to The Card Concept

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.   

At the end of the challenge, our Design Team will choose one Main Winner and at least three Honorable Mentions.  In addition to announcing the winners here on our challenge blog, we will be also be posting their cards on 
our Facebook page as well as our new Pinterest board.  

We are looking forward to seeing what inspires you-
will it be the colors, the overall theme, the items or something else?  

Choose a design or combine styles, create a card and come play along!

Again, as we mentioned above, 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!

You will notice that 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 for 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!

In case you missed the link above, the styles are explained HERE.
