The Card Concept #195 {Floral Spring} or {Garden Birds}

          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. 

With Mother's Day this coming weekend, we chose a floral inspiration as well as garden birds, but you do not need to create a Mother's Day card.  You may decide to use just the colors, images,  textures, etc. 

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 both of the inspiration boards.

Kerry's Inspiration: Garden birds were the
 inspiration for my Mixed Media card.

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the Garden Birds
 photo for my Clean and Layered Mixed Media card!
I will be posting to my blog later today :-)

Michele's Inspiration: My little Garden Bird was 
inspired by the pretty palette, the small birds, and the 
round shape for my Clean and Layered card.

Karen's Inspiration: I was inspired by the 
overall theme of Floral Spring and the colors 
in the photo for my Clean and Layered card.

Karen's Inspiration: My Vintage Shabby Chic card was
 inspired SO much by the gorgeous colors
 in the Spring Florals photo.

Jenny's Inspiration: I was inspired by the patterns and 
colours of the napkin and table cloth in the first 
photo to make a Clean and Layered Card.

Nancy's Inspiration: Colors, and a beached vibe 
inspired my Clean and and Layered card.

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

 joining us again soon!

The deadline to participate will be

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!
