Time Out Reminder

Happy Friday Eve and that means over at TIME OUT Challenges we are announcing our winners, go check it out and see if you are there.
I am also here to remind you that you still have nearly a week to join in our 'Home Sweet Home Photo' challenge.

Here is my card:



I came up with the idea for this card when I saw the challenge this week at CAS on Sunday. I remembered that I had wanted to make a card for TIME OUT Challenges using the feather hanging from the tee pee in our photo here:



However for my original DT card I went for the colours and patterns but thanks to the 'Sympathy' card challenge CAS on Sunday this idea popped into my head. For some reason I think feathers seem just right on a sympathy card. I also think this sentiment is perfect at these times. I kept the card neutral but did get a bit arty by adding in my own feather lines using a white pen. I wasn't sure this would work but really like how it turned out and just added a few more once I became confident I wouldn't mess it up!

Head on over to TIME OUT Challenges as we have winners and more inspiration from other DT members to encourage you to take some TIME OUT and create with us x
