The Card Concept #194 {Spring Bouquet}

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 Clean and Layered double-flap 
fun fold card was inspired by the nests and flowers.

Kerry's Inspiration: My Mixed Media card was 
inspired by the candle, flowers and colour palette.

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the soft pinks, blues 
as well as the gorgeous flowers and touches of silver for 
my Shabby and Vintage Mixed Media card!

Michele's Inspiration: I loved the soft pastel and 
the delicate blossoms and used them in my 
sweet Clean and Simple card.

Karen's Inspiration: I was inspired by the 
flowers in the center of the table and the
