The Card Concept #3...

Hey there!  I am here today with a card for this weeks Card Concept #3.  I am really to be guest designing for the month of February.  

This challenge was to use monochromatic pink.  I pulled 2 different shades of pink from the picture and made a striped background with a stencil from Simon Says, blending darker to lighter.  I used a part of a die cut from Heart in a box and then the small love you die, layered on top in a soft gray card stock.

It's hard to see but I added in some vellum hoping to mute the colors just a tad.

So that is it for my first Card Concept creation.  This challenge is bi-monthly so I will have one more coming up in 2 weeks!  I hope that you get the chance to play along!  There is a lot of amazingly talented girls on this team, so stop by The Card Concept blog and check them out!

Thanks for stopping in!

  15. Hi Laurie, I am so glad you have joined us on the team this month. And what a start. I love the diagonal striped background, it's amazing how much movement it gives to the card. The white elements look so perfect on it. Lovely.
