Clean & Graphic..


I stumbled across a new challenge blog called the Card Concept..great idea 12 designers, 6 different styles.

This is their first week and I think they are going to be very successful.

This week, there is a colour palette -

You have to use the palette in conjunction with your chosen style. A really nice element of the challenge is you have to comment on the person that appears before and after you :) How nice is that!

I chose Clean & Graphic..hence the title of my post. I went with this style because as I started selecting the papers I wanted to use, I felt that it would work with a particular stamp, which is very graphic.

The Thank You stamp is new-ish and it comes as part of a set which I am really loving right now..but I threw away the packaging and can't for the life of me remember who they are by :( All my papers are  by DCWV and I used an expresso ink by Studio G.

My card got a very favourable reception from Hubby, he said he liked the cleanliness of it!! Ha ha.

A slight amendment to my post because I want to link up with CASual Friday as suggested by one of the DT over at Card Concept.

This week at CASual Friday it is colour blocks -

As pointed out by card fits in nicely :)

Happy Sunday everyone.
