Time Out DT #27, AAA Cards #35, Seize The Birthday – 12/3, SSS Work It Wednesday – February

We have a delicious theme challenge for you at Time Out for the next two weeks … it’s Clean and Simple … and there’s an optional twist of black and white with a splash of just one colour … how  yummy!  This is what I came up with …

Time Out DT 27, AAA 35, STB 12-3, SSSWIW FebruaryTime Out

Yes, I know … a butterfly … not sure that’s ever happened before on one of my cards!  This one’s here courtesy of my sweet friend Chriss, who sent a whole kaleidoscope of them fluttering my way last month … thanks so much again, Chriss!  She (the butterfly) chose bright pink vellum for her debut ensemble … and accessorised with a touch of sparkly black Stickles … with that dramatic colour combination, how could she not be the star of the show?  I staged her on a simple white (SSS die cut) panel and paired her with a crisp black sentiment (PTI) … that way her loveliness gets chance to shine!

So, what CAS delight will you come up with this time round … and will you use the twist?  If you do, you’re in with a random chance of winning a US$20 gift voucher from our sponsor, CAS-ual Fridays … and as usual, our overall winner (as chosen by the DT) will be invited to be a Guest Designer for a future challenge.  There’s inspiration galore over at Time Out, from our lovely and talented Guest Designer, Susanne from Keep In Touch Cards and from our wonderful DT … why not have a meander over and enjoy exploring?  I do hope you’ll find time to have some fun and play along … look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

I’m joining in with …

    Anita….this is absolutely stunning. From your sweet butterfly, to your wonderful choice of colors, but that die is so amazing. Fabulous card my sweet friend.

    The panal is so beautiful, just like the colours and shape of the butterfly! A “delicous”card! Great start for the new challenge! Enjoy the weekend, Gerrina

    “W-O-W” factor that is off the charts here pal! Three simple elements create an off-the-charts “W-O-W” factor! You nailed it all – dynamic color combo, perfectly CAS, beautiful movement from the sentiment to the butterfly, texture, design! Stunning card Anita!

  8. Shona Chambers

    This is such the coolest challenge theme don’t you think?? So many possibilities, just like this gorgeous wonder. That butterfly in black is so dramatic against the pink and white. Amazing!
