Hello … bonjour! It’s a very special day for us today at Time Out … it’s our 4th birthday! Huge congratulations to Sandie and the whole Design Team … may there be many more happy years of being inspired together ahead! We’re celebrating with a most appropriate and fun ‘Inspired By Words’ challenge … birthdays are full of sunshine, love and laughter … here’s my take on it … Over the last week or so, all the blossom trees round about us have suddenly come into flower … and they provided the inspiration for my almost one layer card. It’s stamped with images from Concord & 9th’s Beautiful Branches … I double stamped the blossoms … in light pink all over and in dark pink around the centres, not being too precise so as to mimic the style of the image. The ‘because’ sentiment (Concord & 9th’s Just Because) was die cut, coloured to match the branches and triple stacked before being adhered to the card … and I stamped the tiny secondary sentiments (from SSS) around it in the same dark pink as the blossom centres. I finished off with some dots of white gel pen on the stamens and a scattering of Lucy’s Little Gems around the sentiment.
Where will our words take your creative imagination? You can use any or all of them to inspire your card … we’d love if it you joined in our celebration! We’re sponsored by Concord & 9th this time round, thanks to Angie and Greg … our overall winner (as voted for by the DT) will receive a $25 GC … and will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at Time Out, along with a heaps of lovely inspiration from our fabulous DT … as well as from our super talented and returning Guest Designer, the lovely Claire from Life On The Scrap Heap. You probably know Claire already … if not, you should! Why not pop over for a visit and enjoy a wonderful meander through all the deliciousness on offer over at her blog … you could say hello while you’re there too! Oh, and one final thing … if you head over to the Concord & 9th blog, you’ll find that they’re also sharing about our birthday celebration!
