I'm sure some of you have heard about the new kid on the block...The Card Concept challenge!  If not, well then listen up because this challenge has something for everyone!

The dynamic Lesley Croghan has developed a fantastic new bi-weekly challenge blog that features 12 designers and six ..yes six different styles! You get to choose which style you would like to design in.

One of the styles is Clean & Graphic .... the style that Lesley has asked me to represent on this amazing design team -  YAY!!!  It really has been hard to keep this exciting news a secret until today! 

My partner in this new and exciting Clean & Graphic category is fellow Canadian Ardyth Percy-Robb, who we all know rocks clean & graphic! We will be joined by 10 other creative ladies, each displaying their talent in the other categories!

The definition of Clean & Graphic is:
- clean lines
- simple treatment of text
- no frills
- bare-boned
- message is communicated quickly

Lesley asked us to share a card in our style. This is one of my favorites that I made some time ago. I love the clean graphic design that the simple lines create.  The message is communicated simply by the heart and the "u".  Definitely bare-boned in a great way! 


So, now it is time for you to scoot on over to The Card Concept to meet the designers that have been introduced to date.  Keep checking back as the new DT is revealed!  

The first challenge is set for January, 2014.  You won't want to miss it!
