Guest Designing for Time Out Challenge


Hello there, blog friends ~ Recently, I won the CASE Challenge at  Time Out Challenge Blog and last week I posted a card that I created as their Guest Designer! Today, the Design Team is sharing more inspiration with you at the Time Out Challenge Blog ~ As a reminder, the current challenge is a 'Theme Challenge', which is Nature, with an optional twist of animals. 

Here is my card:



A few weeks ago, the 'Amazing' Laura Bassen posted THIS VIDEO for Papertrey Ink showing us how to get more 'Bang for our buck' with Cover Plates. So, I pulled out my In The Woods Cover Plate, die cut it in white, and colored it with Copic Markers. I inked the background with SSS Sea Glass ink and stamped the Mama Elephant sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink. A few sparkly clear sequins, and that was it!

If you would like to play along, please go to the Time Out Challenge Blog and submit your card ~ And, don't forget, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is sponsoring the challenge with a $25.00 gift voucher for the random winner that 'twists'!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~
