The Card Concept Challenge #175 - May Flowers

Hello my stampy friends!

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

I got to spend the weekend with my son and daughter-in-law!

We had a fabulous time!

We are starting a new challenge today at 


Here is our pretty Inspiration Photo:

I love, love, love these colors together!

I was so surprised to like this color combo!

I was inspired by the colors to create my Clean & Elegant Style card:

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

I started my card by stamping some floral images onto white card stock. I used the matching dies to cut out the floral images. Next, I used another die set to cut out the yellow panel and the white panel. 

I dry embossed the yellow panel with a flower die from my stash. This may be an older Stampin Up embossing folder. I attached the stamped flower images to the yellow panel with glue and foam tape. And I added all of these panels to an A2 size white card base.

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
I love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
