Time Out Reminder

Happy Friday Eve

Today we are announcing our winners at Time Out Challenges. Pop on over and see if you are there!
I am also here with a card to remind you that you still have chance to join in our photo challenge.

First off my card:


And here this the photo that inspired this card:


I have gone with the natural colours, wood grain and the blocks of words. Rather than blocks of words I used the grunge floral strips from STAMPlorations that I was reminded about by my blogging friend Monika when I saw her card this week for the sketch challenge at STAMPlorations. I have used the sketch for my lay out, flipping it. For the die cut I used some corrugated card I have had for years. And obviously had to add some Wink of Stella to my grunge strips, well...just because I love it!

I hope you take some time out to join in our fun at TIME OUT Challenges. Plus don't forget we are still running our special 'Double the Joy' challenge for teamie Bev to celebrate the birth of her twins...prizes to be won!

  8. The die cuts words look fab with the use of corrugated paper. I'm thinking of country and western looking at your card, I think this is a great design, Sandie!
