The Card Concept #196 {Patriotic Picnic}

       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 card
was inspired by the patriotic theme.

Kerry's Inspiration: My Clean and Layered card 
was inspired by the flowers and for a hint of 
patriotic, I used Australian natives.

Julie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the flowers, patriotic 
theme, ginghams and stars as well as the colors for my 
Shabby and Vintage Mixed Media card!

Michele's Inspiration: I went a little outside the box 
for my fun Clean and Layered Patriotic Picnic theme,
using red, white, blue, and beige.

Karen's Inspiration: I was inspired by the Patriotic 
Stars and Stripes in the photo along with the colors
 and the flowers for my Clean and Layered card.

Karen's Inspiration:  I was inspired by the
patriotic theme, colors and textures when
creating my Clean Layered card.

Jenny's Inspiration: Definitely the colours, the patterns 
and the vase of flowers inspired my 
Clean and Layered card

Nancy's Inspiration: Red, white & blue inspired 
my Clean and Layered card.

Mackie's Inspiration: I was inspired by the red, white 
and blue to create my Clean and Layered style card.

Betty's taking an extended break and 
will hopefully join us again soon!

The deadline to participate will be  
Monday, June 5th at 12:00 pm EDT.

We look forward to seeing your artwork in our gallery!
