Card Concept Inspiration Challenge

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since our last Card Concept Challenge

Our challenge that starts today is an inspiration challenge. As part of the wild card team, I am to create a card in the clean and graphic style. I based my card on the colors in the photo. I created my card using rectangles, circles, lines to form my graphic design.

I started my card by stamping my background image using the PaperTrey Ink stamp "ombre builders" in old olive ink. The rounded rectangle layer was cut from kiwi kiss designer paper and a PaperTrey Ink die "phrase play #5".  I cut the happy word 2 additional times and layered it to give it some dimension.
I used part of a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers for my sentiment. To complete my card, I die cut some sequins from an MFT die. 

That completes my card for this challenge. Hope you can play along. Drop over on the Card Concept blog to get all the details and to check out the other amazing cards the designers have created. 

This is the inspiration photo and read here for an explanation of the card styles the designers will be using.
