The Card Concept Challenge # 128-Be Mine Valentine!


I love, love, love the bold graphics and colors in our inspiration photo
 for our new challenge starting today at The Card Concept!
I always love red, black & white together!

I decided to make a Clean & Simple style card.


This card was made mostly with dies cuts!


The only stamping were the red splatters.

And I couldn't resist...so I made another Clean & Simple style card!


The main emphasis with this card is the ribbon and lace!


 A very simple layout that just pops!!!!

The style of my card is considered Clean & Simple:

One main image
Lots of open space
Limited layers and embellishements
Quick & easy to create

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at 
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:

Your first one has a modern artsy look to it and the second is just as sweet as it can be! Love them both Mackie!
