Thank You

It's time for a new challenge at Time Out!!! With Time Out Challenge #163, we are challenged by the words "Let us be grateful to the people that make us happy. They are the gardeners who make our souls blossom."

We are generously sponsored by STAMPlorations.
Challenge winner will receive a $25 and will be asked to be the Guest Designer for a future challenge.

Our Guest Designer is the wildly talented Trina Pfam of Phamtastic Designs. Trina's work is truly fantastic. Please do yourself a favor and visit her blog for some awesome inspiration!

My card is very much inspired by THIS card created by Michele Ferguson. She makes me buy all kinds of things like that wonderful Pinkfresh Studio Braided Tag die that I used for my card. I smooshed several Distress Oxide inks on to Bristol Paper, then stamped images from STAMPlorations Beautiful You set. I die cut the inked and stamped area with the tag die, and added the sentiment and the ribbon. I mounted the tag on textured card stock, then on to a black card base.

Please hop on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations that our Design Team came up with to inspire you. Come play with us!

this is gorgeous-I love that tag-what a fab shape. And wow to your smooshed background. Wonderful blend of colours and works so well with the wild flowers. The most perfect sentiment x

Beautiful and artsy. Your gorgeous smooshed background is so well blended (love the colours) and a perfect backdrop for your stamped silhouette flowers. And thank you so much for your kind words... I reciprocate.

I'm not sure who it was that brought back this gorgeous silhouette style of stamping, Stephanie, but I'm sure happy about it! Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the smooshed background! I'm seeing green grass, blue water, and a twilight sky!

What a stunner this is Stephanie! Love your use of the turquoise textured card stock against the black card bases and the tag is beautiful (ands yes, I am also a big fan of the enabler that is Michele!) The smooshing is gorgeous in these fabulous colours and I love those silhouettes too. Vicky x
