The Card Concept #154 {Happy Mother's Day}

                            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: 

Esther's Inspiration:  I was inspired by the beautiful floral
centerpiece to create this Clean and Simple card and 
matching bookmark.

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the blues along 
with the pretty florals to create a 
Clean and Simple/ Mixed Media card!

Michele's Inspiration:  I was inspired by this spring color 
palette and the floral blooms for my 
Clean and Layered look.

Karen's Inspiration: I was inspired by the gorgeous 
spring colors and flower bouquet for my 
Clean and Layered card.

Nancy's Inspiration: Clean and layered for this, 
my favorite inspiration ever!

LeAnne Pugliese
LeAnne's Inspiration:  I was inspired by the bright colors 
of the table wear for my Clean and Layered card.

Mackie's Inspiration:  I was inspired by the beautiful 
bouquet of flowers to create my 
Mixed Media Style card!

Kim's Inspiration:  My Clean and Layered card was 
inspired by the colors and dimension in the flowers 
and also by the bold blue color paired with those dainty flowers.

Anita's Inspiration: I was so inspired by the jar of 
flowers and the colors of pink and green for this 
Clean and Layered card.

Betty's Inspiration: I was inspired by the beautiful 
flowers and the pattern on the vase.  I created a 
Clean and Layered styled card.

The Card Concept Guidelines:

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 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!

The deadline to participate is 
Monday, May 10th at 12:00 pm EDT.

Our Challenge Winner and the Honorable Mentions will be announced on Wednesday, May 12th. 

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!

If you would like to be included in our entries for possible Winner or Honorable Mention, please make sure you include our inspiration photo in your blog post, explain how you were inspired by our challenge and direct link to our challenge site.  
Thanks again for playing along with us!
