Time Out Challenge #2

It was great to see how many of you took TIME OUT to join in our first challenge. Thank you for supporting us! We are going to have a hard job choosing the winners! I am here with my card for our second challenge at TIME OUT. This challenge is our photo challenge. All our photo challenges are going to be focused on Interior Design. We decided to add this little twist as we love to look at beautiful home interiors and who hasn't wanted to sneak a look at how our neighbour's decorated their houses!

Here is our photo for this week:



Now what is going to inspire you...crisp white linen, butterflies, wood grain, that little clock or sail boat?? I went with wood grain and butterflies:


I die cut copper sheets for my butterflies. These copper sheets are just fabulous and I got them as a gift from my crafting buddy Loll. She has lots of advice on her blog of how to use these funky sheets. I just love them and still have a few more sheets to play with! Oh and I just realised that little strip of cork also came from Loll in the same package-thank you Loll for helping me put this card together!!

Our DT have come up with some really creative ways to interpret this photo so please check them out here to be inspired! The winner of this challenge will be offered a Guest Design position.

You have until Wed 9th April 5pm GMT to join in the fun.

I will also enter this into the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday-metal or faux metal
Eclectic Ellapu-the pink teams 'wings'
Opus Gluei-touch me, inspire me

  7. The vibrant and warm color of the butterfly is beautiful against the plain, cream background.
    I love the photo, getting lots of ideas, but I'm leaving for a holiday to the Canary Islands on Saturday, so no time to play yet. Better get on with my packing....

  11. That vivid colored butterfly is so beautiful, Sandie! The wood grain is also very inspired -I just saw butterflies and white space in the photo but of course there's much more to it too! Luckily you are a much more clever team member. :) Hugs!

  16. Loving how you interpreted your inspiration into a fabulous clean and simple card with so much oomph! The butterfly color with the metallic sheen is awesome, and you've built loads of texture into this with the embossing and the cork strip. Delightful and going to make a recipient quite happy! Thank you for taking time to find us over and Opus Gluei and share your creativity with us. Hope you come back for more challenges, I'm certainly going to check yours out as well.
