TCC51 Mixed Media- His Grace Is Sufficient For You
It’s time for new The Card Concept #TCC51 "Naturally Pink" Inspiration Challenge! I took inspiration from the colors of the eggs as well as the texture of the wood and nest for my Mixed Media card.
Just a reminder that The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media.
I have also linked this card to the Alphabet Challenge “A for Anything Pink and the Word Art Wednesday #222-223 "Anything Goes" Challenge.
I hope you have a chance to visit us at The Card Concept and check out the rest of our Design Team samples as well as the other challenge sites- wonderful inspiration from all!!
