The Card Concept Challenge #75 - Hello Friend

Hello and happy Wednesday! It's time for a brand new The Card Concept Challenge! We have a beautiful inspiration photo for you to play with:

I think this is my all time favorite inspiration photo so far! Here is the card I created:

2. Clean and Layered
  • clean lines
  • lots of layers
  • designer papers/embossing
  • embellishments/accents
  • clean and fresh looking
  • some coloured images at times
  • white space
         I often use the "Clean and Layered design concept when creating cards. I love the look of a "polished" card, something you could frame if you wanted to. Ithas definitely been my go-to for years.
               To create my card I used the beautiful "Stitched Roses" stamp set by Waffle Flower stamps. I was an avid cross stitcher before I became a card maker. This set comebines the best of both worlds! All of my patterned paper is from Stampin' Up!and the dies I used are from My Favorite Things.
        I hope you will play along with us for our 2 week challenge at The Card Concept!

Veronica, this is so cute! I just LOVE that stitched roses look - -it looks like cross stitch! It is so perfect with the tiny little stitches! Great color and very elegant and feminine too! LOVE it!
Take care!

This is oh-sew-chic! :) I love that cross-stitched bloom and the way you incorporated those patterned chairs into your design through that subtle background paper.
