The Card Concept: Daisies

This is my second post today!

I have the great thrill and honor of being the September guest at The Card Concept.  It is a fabulous challenge that gives an inspiration photo, then uses the inspiration in different card styles.  Their defined card styles are: Clean and Simple, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic and Vintage, Clean and Graphic, and Freestyle Collage.  I was asked to be a "Clean and Layered" guest which describes my style perfectly!
  • Clean lines
  • Lots of layers
  • Designer papers/embossing
  • Embellishments/accents
  • Clean and fresh looking
  • Some colored images at times
  • White space
This is the inspiration for the new challenge:


I didn't venture too far away from the graphic with my flowers and colors.  When I first looked at the photo, I got the impression that the box of flowers was sitting on a newspaper.  Now that I look again, I don't think it is - but I'm happy it sent me looking for my black strip of print paper.

CC Thank You Daisies


I'm hoping my card fits right into the Clean and Layered definition!!  Definitely clean lines, a few layers, some patterns, twine and sequins, some coloring, lots of white space...check!!

I think most of us have already discovered The Card Concept, but if not be sure to check it out. Even if you don't play along, it's a great place to browse and to figure out the styles that work for you.
