Green fern

Fern  - have a wonderful day

So the reason I told you I was starting this blog was to be able to "try out" for card design teams. That's what this post is about! I came across The Card Concept from another card blog that I follow. I saw that they were looking for new design team members and decided I had nothing to lose to apply! To apply, you had to look at past challenges and choose one to create a new card and describe why you want to be a designer!

So I'm using their challenge #36  and this is the photo for inspiration:

What I saw was a lot of white and a little green. I've had lots of "styles" since I started making cards but I ALWAYS come back to loving clean and simple designs. My style isn't always as clean and simple as I envision but it still is what attracts me and, in fact, most of the card blogs I follow are pretty strictly clean and simple designs. I'm definitely NOT a layer upon layer type person!

So with this card I am applying to be a Clean and Simple designer for The Card Concept! As the saying goes, nothing ventured, nothing gained!

I do have to show you a close up of the fern because it's so classy with the subtle glimmer of watered down Wink of Stella! (My photo taking and editing skills will get better as I blog!)
