The Card Concept One Year Anniversary Celebration!



This month marks the One year Anniversary for The Card Concept Challenge!
Congratulations to Lesley Croghan Challenge Creator & Designer as well as Tracey McNeely Challenge Manager and Clean & Simple Designer for a year full of remarkable challenges!
It has been my pleasure to be part of the Design Team for the past 5 months, joining several remarkably inspiring cardmakers.
Challenge #26 photo is full of Gorgeous color and pattern...focusing on Shabby Chic style. Andrea Ewen is guest designing with us in that category for the month of January.


I was inspired by the sweet  pinstripes and nosegay. Here is my card for Freestyle/Collage.


An ATC size ART Square from inchie arts, llc takes center stage...which adds the perfect dimension!

Baby's Breath from wplus9 tiny stamp
Wplus9's Pretty Peonies and Pretty Little Peonies make up the bouquet..some tiny stamps in both sets make perfect Baby's Breath when embossed in White and Pearl!
I also used SSS Diagonal Stripe Stencil and Spellbinders Venetian Motifs. The inks are PTI Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet and Limeade Ice. Distress Shabby Shutters and Brilliance Pearlescent Coral...LOVE the shimmer in this one:)



Hope you are inspired to play along!
Remember all styles of cards are welcome and encouraged in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
LauraJane:)
