THE CARD CONCEPT #188 Floral Valentine

 Hello there Crafty Friends! It's time for another challenge at The Card concept. The theme is Floral Valentine and we have a beautiful photo to inspire your creativity.

I used the gorgeous Altenew Arch of Flowers set, which includes a Stamp, Stencil and Die. I used Altenew inks and Copic Markers to colour the flowers. The background is made with the Altenew Organic Linen Embossing Folder. To finish I added an elegant die-cut sentiment using a SSS die and framed it with a die-cut oval window. 

As you can see, I was inspired by the beautiful Tulips and colours to make a Layered CAS Card.

Remember, an inspiration photo is exactly that- a starting point for inspiration. Will it be the colours, the overall theme, the texture, the actual items and/or something else that will inspire your card? 

I hope you'll visit The Card Concept Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team has created and will be inspired to play along in the challenge with us. 

Choose a design style (or combine styles), create a card, and in your blog post, let us know what inspired you from the photo, what style and/or styles you chose and don't forget to display our inspiration photo and link back to our challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)
