Designing for the Card Concept!

Today I am introducing myself over at the Card Concept as a designer! Strange to be doing so! 

I have to admit; I did not know where to place myself in the list of styles. I know I like to create cards that are clean & layered but I wanted to have the challenge of creating Classy & Elegant! Here is a project I made earlier in the Fall.

The Classy/Elegant Style can be defined as:

  • polished
  • shiny finish
  • sparkling embellishments
  • rich colour scheme
  • sophisticated sentiments
  • regal
  • sweeping
  • dramatic
  • monochromatic
  • layered textures
  • awe
  • impress

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement with this new challenge!! I am excited to see what the team creates in their various styles! They are all fabulous designers and wonderful people.


  1. you're definitely classy & elegant...although you can rock so many other styles too! What a wonderful trio of goodness!

  2. You did and amazing job picking this Team! I can't wait to see all these styles in action. There are 2 I absolutely adore and can't wait to try out!

  3. It sure looks classy and elegant to me! Blessings on your new endeavor! I think you will do well.

  4. I think this style suits your personality because from what I see (here in blogland) you are one CLASSY lady. I love this card and tags you have shown here! I wish you luck with this new venture!!

  5. Yay! So happy you are joining us as a designer!! I love your beautiful style and can't wait to see your take on the challenges! Your cards are lovely! :)

  6. Love your card and tags. I have been looking for that tree die every since I saw it on one of your other projects.
    Congrats on this new challenge. I look forward to the new inspiration and playing along.
    Wishing you a very Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.

  7. Beautiful card and tags! You are definitely classy and elegant. I look forward to playing and trying to figure out what style I am. lol I feel like I am a little of all of them. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  8. Classy & Elegant is my favorite but without the "clutter" sometimes seen. I really love your card & tags--perfect to my eye!

  9. Congratulations on the appointment to the DT, Lesley! It does seem strange to be saying you since I consider you to be the Queen of design challenges!! I can't wait to see what you create for us!! Hugs, Darnell P.S. It's good to see that you will have something to do in your boring downtime!

  10. P.S. I just realized that my comment would sound odd to people who don't know me, so just delete it. I got a kick out of you being the originator and introducing yourself as a designer. This is how I started getting multiple personalities!! Hugs, Darnell

  11. You've certainly nailed the style with these Lesley, they are gorgeous! Congrats on a new challenge and such a fabulous DT line up! I look forward to playing along when it's up and running...Such a great concept.
    Merry Christmas to you. xxx

  12. Love both the card and the tags. Great color combination and I love the "shadow" tree on the card. Really adds dimension.
