The Card Concept #80 {Autumn Love}

Welcome to The Card Concept!  Every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and we hope you will join in with us and create a card for our challenge gallery.  

Feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.  We want you to have fun with our inspiration!



Our design team members will also be selecting a style (or combination of styles) and will explain how they were inspired by the challenge.  So come and join us!  We'd love you to try your hand at a brand new style of card making or feel free to work in your comfort zone.  It is totally up to you!

The styles are explained HERE.

Now for the design team and their inspiration:

please drop by her blog and say "hi" :-) 


Becca Cruger
Becca's card will be posted shortly :-)

the image and all the white space so I created a

of the cake, all of the different textures, the leaves 
and the theme of love for my Classy and Elegant card.

to do this Clean and Layered card.
