The Card Concept #191 {Signs of Spring} or {Blue Butterfly}

              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.  

This challenge is our double challenge - the second challenge of every month, we are posting two challenge photos!  You can choose whichever photo you prefer, or you could create two separate cards, one for each photo!    

We hope this new option will be one that you enjoy as much as we do- our Designers will let you know which one they decided as well. 

Remember, 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 Clean and Layered card was inspired 
by the colors and elements in the "Signs of Spring" 
inspiration board. 

Kerry's Inspiration: Inspiration for my Clean and Layered 
card came from the flower and butterfly in option b and 
colours from both palettes (namely navy, yellow and turquoise).

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the beautiful blue 
sunflower and butterfly as well as the colors for my 
Classy and Elegant/Mixed Media card. 

Michele's Inspiration: I was inspired by those big, 
juicy lemons for my Clean and Layered card.

Karen's Inspiration: I was inspired by photo 191a, Signs of Spring.  
I love the colors and the eggs caught my eye for my 
Clean and Layered card.

Karen's Inspiration: My card drew a bit of inspiration
from both photos.  The colors, butterfly, and touches
of Spring inspired my Clean and Layered card.

Jenny's Inspiration: I was inspired by the blue and 
white china and table arrangement to make a 
Clean and Layered card.

Nancy's Inspiration: The vibrant blues of the butterfly
 card inspired my Elegant and Classy/
Mixed Media card.

Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the colors and 
lemons to create my Clean and Simple style card.

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

The deadline to participate will be  
Monday, March 27th at 12:00 pm EDT.

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!
