A New Challenge At Time Out – #108 – We Challenge You To Be: Wild!

Hello … bonjour!  Our wonderful new challenge starts this morning at Time Out … this fortnight … We Challenge You To Be … Wild!   Here’s where I went with the theme …

Time OutYep, wild flowers … in luscious blue and teal hues with a touch of minty green.  Winnie & Walter provided all the elements of this design … the blooms (In Bloom: Victoria’s Very Merry Flowers), the dotty grey background (Mini Scenery: Spotty) and the sentiment (Sentimental: Birthday) … and I added a scattering of Nuvo Grey Mist Jewel Drops.Where will our challenge take your creative imagination … to wild things, as mine did … to a wild colour palette … to a wild design … or somewhere else?  Wherever it takes you, we’d love to see what you create!  This time round, we’re sponsored by Winnie & Walter (thanks, Shay!) … our  winner, as voted for by the DT will receive a $25 GC from the store … and as usual, will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge.  All the details are over at Time Out, along with plenty of fabulous inspiration from our wonderful DT … and from our uber talented Guest Designer, my delightful friend (and probably yours too!), Darnell.  You already know and love her … why not pop over to see her and let her know that!

I’m playing along at …

    I do believe I have those wildflowers in my back yard. The certainly look beautiful on your card and I’m simply in love with the color palette you chose. Soft blues, greens and greys…right up my proverbial alley. Hope you’re doing well my friend. I’m off to check out Darnell’s contribution.

    What delightfully pretty card Anita and a great idea to use wild flowers to interpret the theme. I love the colours you have used and the soft grey dots go beautifully in the background, and a great sentiment too. I will try and put an entry in this time. x
