Happy Wednesday, peeps! It's time for a new Card Concept challenge and Julie has chosen a fun "Irish Coffee" theme for us! I have to admit that as much as I love coffee, I've never had Irish coffee! Hmmm...maybe I should remedy that, LOL!
I don't usually send out St Patrick's Day cards, but I do have a couple of friends whose birthdays are on the 17th, so I had them in mind when making this card:
First, I was inspired by all the colors of green in the photo; I used some miscellaneous DSP that was gifted to me for the background, and the horizontal panel is some retired Call Me Clover DSP from last year. I stamped the plaid circle from Kind and Cozy also in Call Me Clover, and the coffee cup in Pear Pizzazz, the hearts in Call Me Clover and Mint Macaron.
I fussy-cut a saying from Banner Blessings to layer it on top, and added a pearl, a Call Me Clover bow and a little Pear Pizzazz ribbon banner. All the layers and embellishments add up to a "Clean and Layered" card for the Card Concept challenge this week! I hope you'll play along with our challenge too! I will say that these challenges have made me realize I make the same style of card every time----I really need to try to change it up, LOL! And since I seem to use the same style most of the time, I thought I would enter this in a new challenge called The Spot! The first week is Designer's Choice!
SO.....I hope you will check out what the design team has created at The Card Concept blog! You'll be inspired! Thanks for popping in today!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
