Card Concept Wedding Challenge

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
 I have been sitting on some news and today is the day I can make my announcement. I was invited by Lesley Croghan to join the Card Concept Design team. I was so excited to be chosen for the team. It will be a 3 month stint that starts today August 6 and continues though October.
The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge blog.The participants are encouraged to create a card, based on the challenge and they have to choose one of the "styles" of our designers to design in.
The styles are divided into 6 style themes:
  • Clean & Simple (CAS)
  • Clean & Layered
  • Clean & Graphic
  • Freestyle Collage
  • Shabby Chic
  • Classy & Elegant

Our challenge for this 2 week period is a theme challenge and we are to create a wedding card.
My assigned theme for this challenge is a clean and layered card. My inspiration from this photo was the blue color of the hydrangeas and the white roses.
To create my card, I used several different Spellbinders dies. I used the Spellbinders dies - resplendent rectangles, floral ovals and standard ovals to set off the beautiful sentiment.
The sentiment is a stamp from Great Impressions - "wishing you joy". I added a bow with a white rose ribbon center and rhinestones to complete my card.
This is such a fun challenge so I hope you can play along with us. Drop over to the Card Concept blog to "meet" the other new designers. Then pull out your wedding stamps and create a card for the challenge.
Until next time.......God bless.
