Happy 2nd anniversary to The Card Concept!






It's time to celebrate! 

It's our 2nd year anniversary at The Card Concept

This was my first year on the design team, and I have had SO much fun. I LOVE to browse the gallery and see all the wonderful cards everyone makes with the latest challenge. Thanks to Lesley for all the work she does, and to the rest of the DT for all the awesome inspiration each and every challenge!

Here's the inspiration photo:



I focused in on the colors first, then added flowers, pearls and print to my card. 

I started out with the Pretty Print embossing folder from Sizzix, using SU's very vanilla paper. I also cut out some flowers from Poppystamps Petal Ribbon die. I used black for the sentiment from Cherry Lyn and also for the Poppystamps Heart Swoosh.

I hope you will celebrate with us and join in the challenge!
