THE CARD CONCEPT 191a Signs of Spring or 191b Butterfly Blues

Hello my stampy friends!
Hope all of you are doing well!

We have a new challenge starting today at 

It's that time of the month where you have TWO photos to inspire you to make something beautiful and share it with us! We just LOVE seeing what you create using these photos!


I was inspired by the lemons and the beautiful colors of the Signs of Spring photo, to create my Clean & Layered style card.

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

Here is my card:

I used this beautiful and new stamp bundle from Stampin Up to create my card.
This bundle includes the stamp set, embossing folder and matching dies!
And I used all three of them!

The pretty paper is from an older collection from Stampin Up called Harvest Meadow.
 I think it is perfect  for the navy color in the Inspiration photo.

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenges!
We love seeing all of your beautiful creations, and
we want you to have fun with your inspiration!

Here's how you can join us:

Choose a design style (or combine styles) and create a card.

~ Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles. The styles are explained HERE.
