Time Out Challenge #144 is up and running. This time it's a Home Sweet Home Challenge: a photo inspiration challenge with a homey twist!

Our wonderful sponsor is Poppy Stamps. Challenge winner will receive a gift voucher from Poppy Stamps

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the incredibly talented Desert Diva Hannelie. I highly encourage you to treat yourself to a stroll through her blog. Her creations are awesome. Don't miss this opportunity to be inspired, and please leave her some love.

Here is a larger image of the photograph. If you look very carefully, there are many elements that you may not see upon first look!

When I spotted the pillow on the couch that is third from the left, I immediately thought of The Gossip Column: Geometric Generation Digital Elements - a freebie I downloaded from Winnie and Walter. I used that for the background of my card. I wanted to pick up something that was not so obvious in the photo. If you look on the shelf behind the couch, there is a sculpture of a pink hand and next to it, a little glass vase with a piece of greenery in it. When I saw that, I knew just what I would do. The wonky circle is from MFT. The hand is from Hands by Julie Ebersole, Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies and the greenery from Flora and Fauna Terrarium Cluster Dies.

Please head over to the Time Out Challenges Blog to see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. Play with us to share your creation, and for a chance to win a prize from Poppy Stamps. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

yah-we both picked up the hand-I just used the colour-you were far more creative. I also missed that cushion design! You sure did a fab way to use this-I just love the way we all see different things in the photos! One super card x

This is just awesome Stephanie! I don't think I even noticed the hand until I saw it in your card - I love how it looks like it is waving "hi". The graphic background, the splash of greenery - love love love!!!!!! Hugs, Jill

So good of you to spot the hand! And even more beautiful how you used it! Great card! Hugs, Gerrina

That background pattern is so cool and graphic, Stephanie ... and how fun to pick out the hand and fresh green leaves to contrast with it ... such a brilliant take on the inspiration! Hugs, Anita :)
