*NEW* Design Team - The Card Concept


I hope you are enjoying the first day of December! Yay! Our Christmas decorations are going up today! 

I am super excited to share some exciting news! The wonderful and sweet Lesley Croghan has yet again come up with the neatest new card challenge, and I have been invited to be on the design team! I'm so thrilled!

The idea behind the challenge is to represent several different styles of card making. You can read all about the details here on the blog.

I will be representing the clean and layered style:

clean lines
lots of layers
designer papers/embossing
clean and fresh looking
some coloured images at times
white space

I have always loved the clean and simple look, but have never been able to stop at just one layer. I love white space, but it needs lots of little clusters right? heheh! This is most definitely my style and I am thrilled to be on this new design team and to hopefully inspire you to try your hand at the clean and layered style! 

Here's an example of my work and of the clean and layered style you will be seeing from me.

I sure hope you will join us for our very first challenge in January 2014!!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Kay :)
