Hello … bonjour! We have a delicious new challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme is CASE the Designer … and the designer we’re CASE-ing is one of the sweetest and uber talented people in blogland, my lovely friend Hannelie, from Desert Diva! Hannelie’s gorgeous card is a little further down … here’s where I went with it …
You can see where my focus was … the warm colours, sponged background, splatters and those wonderful outline blooms. The lower part of my base card was sponged with Distress Inks, and I faded them out slightly where my flowers were going to be placed. A white panel (die cut with a curve) was splattered with the same three colours of Distress Ink I used on the base, and was popped up on craft foam over the sponging. WPlus9’s Doodle Buds were stamped, die cut, spritzed with Shimmer Spray and arranged in a posy on the curve, with some of them popped up and others adhered flat. The sentiment is from Avery Elle and I finished off with a touch of glitter in the flower centres and on the stamens.
Where will Hannelie’s card take your creative imagination … there are so many places to draw inspiration from … the flowers, colours, lattice detailing, sentiment … or do you see something else? Why not let your mind wander and see what happens … we’d love it if you played along! This time round, we’re sponsored by Happy Little Stampers who will be offering a $15 GC to our winner (as voted for by the DT) … and as usual, our winner will be invited to design with us in a future challenge. All the details are over at Time Out, along with lots of fabulous ideas from our brilliant DT … and from our super talented Guest Designer, my sweet friend Susanne from Keep In Touch. If you haven’t ‘discovered’ Hannelie or Susanne (where have you been!) … or even if you have, do go visit and explore, say hello while you’re there … and have a wonderful time!

I’m not around on my blog very much at the moment … the restoration is taking up my creative time and energy, so there’s not a lot spare for card making. I have, though, been enjoying all your inspiration and am looking forward to the moment when it can all be put to good use in my craft corner! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
