The Card Concept One Year Anniversary Challenge

IMG_7232


The Card Concept is celebrating their one year anniversary this challenge!
I am also happy to report that I am back from my leave to designing with them again.
Thank you Laurie Willison for filling in my spot as Clean & Simple designer in my absence.

We are back with a special anniversary challenge and a new design team for 2015 made up of some of the original design team and some new faces. See all the details on the Card Concept blog as well as their inspiration to get you started with the new challenge.

Check out the beautiful inspiration graphic:



Here is how I was inspired by the graphic...

I am also submitting this to Darnell's NBUS Challenge #3, believe it or not this is the first time I inked up Papertrey Ink's The Sweet Life! I have to say I was a bit intimidated by the layered stamping but it only took two tries to line them up. The first one I tried out on scratch paper was actually the best one--LOL.


I really hope to see you play over at The Card Concept.
Have a great day!

Gorgeous card, Tracey. I also have a stamp set featuring layered flowers and I'm finding it a little intimidating as well, but I guess I should simply give it a try.

I want to pick those roses, they look so real, Tracey. You did a fabulous job of stamping them. I don't have this set but I have the Brushstroke set and wondered what three inks you used to that go so well together in the flowers.
