The Card Concept #142 {Autumn Bounty}

                            Welcome to The Card Concept!  

For those of you who are new to our challenge, 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.  

Just a reminder, an inspiration photo is exactly that- a starting point for inspiration. Will it be the colors, the overall theme, the texture, the actual items and/or something else that will inspire your card?  

Choose a design style (or combine styles), create a card, and in your blog post, let us know what inspired you from the photo, what style and/or styles you chose and don't forget to display our inspiration photo and link back to our challenge :-)

At the end of the challenge, our Design Team will choose one Main Winner and at least three Honorable Mentions.  We will announce the winners here on our challenge blog, as well as our Facebook page and our new Pinterest board.  

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!

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.

Now for our Design Team's inspiration:

colors and textures, inspired my layered

The Card Concept Rules:
1.  Use the challenge inspiration photo to create a card- no back linking.
2.  Use one of the challenge styles to create a card (or if you prefer, combine a few styles).
3.  Explain in a post which style or combination of styles you used and what inspired you from our photo.  
4.  Link your post using our linky (please link to the actual post on your blog and not just your blog) and please display our graphic (inspiration photo) in your blog post.  
5. We do not mind if you combine our challenge with others, but please do not combine ours with another inspiration challenge.   
6.  Please try to comment on the cards ahead of you and behind you in the linky.  Everyone loves comments!

FYI- We have noticed that recently a few of our entrants are not following our rules, especially Rule #3 , #4 and #5(see above).  

The deadline to participate is 
Monday, November 2nd at 12:00 pm EST.

Our Challenge Winner and the Honorable Mentions will be announced on Wednesday, November 4th.
