Hello … bonjour! How’s your week going … wonderfully, I hope! There’s a new challenge at Time Out starting today … it’s running alongside the special birthday challenge for Sandie that started on Monday (CAS with the option of purple … are you joining us?). This fortnight we’re Inspired By Words … ‘may all your weeds be wildflowers’ … isn’t that just lovely? Here’s where I went with it …
This is a QACAS card (Quick And Clean And Simple in Darnell-ese) … the background is a gorgeous texture-y piece of DP that was in my stash (you know that will have been there a loooooooong time considering how little DP I use!) … I adhered it flat to the card base, added a sparkly SSS die cut and white heat embossed the secondary sentiment from Avery Elle. Voilà … may all your weeds be wildflowers, my friends! Here’s a close up view …
How will this lovely phrase inspire you? You can use any or all of the words to get your creative imagination going … and then play along! There’s a prize this time round as we’re sponsored by Clearly Besotted Stamps … the overall winner, as voted for by the DT will win a £15 gift card! All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with creative cards galore from our fabulous DT and our super talented Guest Designer, Julia from der kleine klecks … hope to see you in the gallery!
I’m playing along at …
CAS Mix Up – Heat Embossing … plus die cutting and textured paper
HLS Mixed Media – Shine … plus die cutting and textured paper
SSS Work It Wednesday – Flowers … final entry

what amazing DP to have in your stash-U thought you had embossed it all! So beautiful and you have added the perfect subtle sentiments x
Anita, you have such a way with Time Out’s words!!! Ditto Sandie, add gorgeous … and I’m remembering a bit of sparkle in my stash that a certain lovely friend sent me – more wishes for extra time today!! xx
These card looks so light and elegant; fits the dandelions perfect!
This is wispy, delicate and ever so pretty!!
So soft and sooooooo pretty! A simple, sparkly sentiment was THE perfect choice for this divine paper!
Really, REALLY love this paper!
That is fabulous paper, Anita. I thought you stamped it yourself, and you could have. 😉 It made a beautiful card.
Beautiful design Anita. Love the soft and delicate colour of your background paired with the white embossing. So pretty! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
Don’t know whose dp that is, but I totally understand why you’ve kept it! It’s incredibly gorgeous. Clever of you to match it up the shimmery die. This is exquisite and swoon-worthy, my friend. Gorgeous.
What a wonderful take on the challenge, Anita! Your dandelions are so sweet, and pair perfectly with your DP! Love your sparkly sentiment, too!
Beautiful! Love that designer paper, and your simple die cut really displays it well.
What lovely dp you used for your background! Love the combination of the sparkly die cut and the heat embossed sentiment. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up.
Love the shade of this DP background, looks fab with the white embossing over top of it. Especially liked the sparkle of the big dimensional sentiment too. What a beautiful design and the neutrals are very soothing too. TFS
Lovely card Anita!
Anita, I love your wildflowers! And yay for using some DP! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!
another absolutely lovely clean and simple design, anita!
So pretty Anita. I love your glittery and heat embossed die cut sentiment and stamped flowers. So elegant and creative. TFS and us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs, Nancy
Beautiful card Anita. Have a lovely weekend. Flo xx
Great use of designer paper Anita, I think this looks perfectly CAS, what a beautiful paper! I like your combo of die & stamped sentiment also. xxx
In between a few DH duties, and I so wanted to stop by and see what you’ve created. Not disappointed one bit; in fact, purely delighted! This is such a lovely card, dear friend! LOVE the dp you’ve used for this. It’s such a beautiful color. And those ‘wishing dandylions’ are amazing. Reminds me of the day I showed Grant how to do that….. Missing you and hoping things are going well. Take care.
I love this beautiful combination of softness and sparkle! Beautiful card, Anita.
Simply adore your gorgeous, sparkly creation! And compliments for making a dent into your PP!
Sorry that I am so late in commenting but I’ve had a crazy, busy week (not quite over yet) and am only now starting to catch up with my blogging friends!
Fabulous card, great idea to emboss over DP – I might just have to borrow the idea!
I am so loving this card Anita! The inspirational sentiment, “may all your weeds be wildflowers” is just perfect!!! There’s beauty in all things, we just need to look for it. I have a stamp set like this I just go and so will have to try making a card like yours. A CAS! lol I think I am one of few that loves dandelions, bu their yellow flower against the deep green grass is just so pretty to me. I also love when they turn to seed heads, because how fun and magical is it to blow the seeds and puffs off?! So I’m always showing my grands much to my neighbors dismay. lol Hugs, Brenda .
Soft, airy and ah- so pretty!!! I love dandelion stamps!!!! And all that luscious sparkle!
love the sparkly embossing – so pretty – thanks for joining us at the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge
Your card is really wonderful, Anita! I love the soft green! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity of a guest design! It was a big honour and of course also pleasure for me! 🙂
Best wishes, Julia
Great combo of that delightful PP and the die cut.
Soft and beautiful! I love that you captured the color an shimmer in the second photo!

So soft and amazing!
WOW!! I adore this card!! First, I like that you used DP from your stash!! Second, that sentiment is PERFECTION!!! Love, love, love everything about this!!
I can see why you had that rare piece of DSP, Anita! It is stunning and you used it to perfection with your just-right-sized sediment and die cut! This is feminine and lovely and I adore it!! MYSSMMA!! Huge Hugs!! Darnell
This is stunning Anita, the white embossed image in gorgeous on your butter yellow!
…sorry Anita the white embossed sentiment–lol
That paper is so perfect for the challenge! Love it when an ancient bit of stash finally sees the light of day. 🙂
I don’t have anything as lovely as this paper in my stash box. Well even if I did I would never have created a card as lovely as this one. Good job. 🙂 Barb
WOW to that lovely paper you’ve *un-stashed* for us, especially with the shimmery hello! Glimmer gorgeous!
OHHHHH….this is so beautiful Anita! I love your white flowers are so lovely against that gorgeous yellow background. Miss you lots!
Sorry to be so late stopping by…..
This is beautiful – I love the soft colours of the paper you used – so summer-y and perfect! Wonderful idea to use the DP for a quick card!
