Time Out #43

A very Happy Friday Eve,

You know what that means.......time to take some TIME OUT and get crafty as TIME OUT  are starting a new challenge. This time around it is our theme challenge and the theme is:

Christmas with the optional twist of using purple and/or pink 

Here is my card using the twist:

Uniko are sponsoring this challenge and we are very pleased that some of their Design Team are joining in with us this week-you can check out what they have created on our main blog here. We are choosing a random winner from those who twist with us. I got the idea for this card when I saw Jane, a member of the DT Uniko team create this card. I loved how used vellum to stamp the poinsettia. The stamp is pure florals-poinsettia from Uniko and the sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very creative Suchi. I have for a long time admired Suchi's cards. Check out her blog here.

Pop over to Time Out and see what Suchi and the DT have created to inspire you to join in and then take some time out and join in. Christmas is just around the corner so this challenge gives you a good change to get ahead!

I will enter this into:
