The Card Concept Challenge

 Happy 2020!
I can't believe it is here!

The Card Concept has a fantastic inspiration board 
starting today that is perfect to start off the New Year!

All of the gold and silver and black colors 
inspired my Clean & Layered Style card .

I pulled out an older Gear Embossing folder to create the background. I thought it fit the theme!

The rest of the card was done with various dies and foil papers from Tim Holtz. The white stars were cut from white glitter paper. And I added lots of dimension with silver foil crystals and sparkly enamel dots!

The style of my card would be considered


~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

I hope you will create a card or project using any of the  styles we have defined 
or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

The Rules:

1.  Use the challenge inspiration to create a card.
2.  Use one of the challenge styles to create a card (or if you prefer, combine a few styles).
3.  Explain in a post which style or combination of styles you used and what inspired you from our photo.  
4.  Link your post using our linky (please link to the actual post on your blog and not just your blog).
5.  Please try to comment on the cards ahead of you and behind you in the linky.  Everyone loves comments!

The deadline to participate is 
Monday, January 20 at 12:00 pm EDT.

Absolutely perfect take on this week's inspiration photo! I love how your gear background mimics the look of the clock faces in the photo! Awesome card!

I love how you pulled this card together, Mackie! The gear background is subtle but works perfectly! Looking forward to working with the DT!!!

This is VERY cool...I really love that embossing folder, but the big metallic letters and numbers, along with the stars, really knock it out of the park! Oh, and the bling...fabulous!
