Card Concept Challenge #97

YAY!!! The Card Concept is back from summer break!
We hope everyone has had a great summer and are ready to play with us and our new challenge!

Look at those rainbow stripes!

That was my inspiration for our new challenge.

First I created a rainbow background with a wide paint brush, water and distress inks.
When dry, I added some black paint splatters.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the flower on some vellum with black embossing powder. The fun sentiment die cut is from Spellbinders.

Each designer chooses a style of card to create.

All of the styles are explained HERE.
I think my style of this card would be considered 
Classy & Elegant:
Shiny finish
Sparkling embellishments
Rich color scheme
Sophisticated sentiments
Layered Testures
Awe & Impress
Please feel free to use any of these styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles. 

hope I have inspired you to join us here at 
Please visit my very talented teammates for some GREAT inspiration!

Simple but gorgeous card with the hand painted water color stripes. The little black stamped flower adds just the right amount of glamour.
