Time Out Challenges #65 Reminder

Hi There

Time for me to remind you there is still time to join in our latest challenge at Time Out Challenges. This time around we have our 'Inspired by Words' challenge and our words this week are:

'Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to grow again next year' (Chad Sugg)

You can use any of the words in the phrase to inspire you are focus on the whole phrase. I decided to go with the word 'encourage' and made a card that I thought could be used to encourage someone who needed it on a particular day...say for an interview,exam etc. But also I could use this for a Birthday-well lots of reasons really.

CAS-ual Fridays are our sponsors for this challenge and the sentiment stamp is from their stamp Butterbows. I water coloured the background card in rainbow colours then used the STAMPlorations stitched die to give it a funky edge. I then die cut this frame and butterfly out in white card. However the white didn't look quite right so I decided to colour it using promarkers and copics. Can you believe using copics and water colouring in one card!!

Our GD Rema is joining us again this week. Her blog Paper Panache is full of creative and inspiring projects-take a browse.

Our DT have all made superb cards, take a look here, then join in the fun.

Don't forget the winner gets a $25 gift voucher to use at CAS-ual Fridays 

I will enter this into:
