The Card Concept #190 {Lucky Charm}

                 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: My Mixed Media card was 
inspired by the colors.

Kerry's Inspiration: My Mixed Media card was inspired
by the luck theme 
and colour palette.

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the greenery, 
the bird and the natural elements in the tray items 
along with the black and white buffalo plaid ribbon 
for my Clean and Layered/Mixed Media card.

Michele's Inspiration: I was inspired by that trendy kitchen
 tray and all that greenery to create my 
Clean and Layered card!

Karen's Inspiration: My Freestyle Collage card was
inspired by all the beautiful green plants in the photo
and the Black & White Gingham around the candle

Karen's Inspiration: My Shabby Chic/Vintage 
card was inspired by the colors, shamrocks 
and St. Patrick's Day elements.

Jenny's Inspiration: I was inspired by the 
colours and the foliage to create a 
Clean and Layered Card

Nancy's Inspiration: My inspiration came from the 
green foliage, the color swatches, and the sweet 
little bird. My style is Classy and Elegant/Layered.

Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the 
St. Patrick's Day theme to create my 
Clean and Layered style card.

Betty is taking a break for this challenge 
and will be back with us soon!

The deadline to participate will be  
Monday,  March 13th at 12:00 pm EDT.

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!
