Great news!



Hi everyone!

Today I'm VERY excited as it's my first post as a designer for The Card Concept! I'm so happy to be joining such a great team of designers.

As you know, I LOVE CAS cards, and I get to design under "clean and layered"...just perfect for me, I love using and layering dies!

It just so happens it's the one year anniversary at The Card Concept, and here is the gorgeous inspiration photo for the challenge:


I immediately noticed the soft, beautiful colors, especially the bit of blue!

So I started with SU's soft Pool Party blue for my card base, and added a layer with a white Lil Inker stitched rectangle. I kept it simple, just adding one more layer of Joanna Sheen's ivy flourish in old olive and a Paper Trey flower in pink and white. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, stamped in black.

Be sure to head on over to The Card Concept and check out all the awesome cards... and better yet...play along!
