A New Challenge At Time Out – #117 – Inspired By Words

Hello … bonjour!  We’re starting a fresh new challenge at Time Out today … this fortnight we’re Inspired By Words … toes in the sand, wine in our hands, life is good today, let us be grateful for what makes us happy.  Here’s where my imagination took me …

Time OutHere I picked out the middle part of the phrase … life is good today … and made a fun, one layer CAS card with a Simon Says Stamp rising sun as the focal point.  It was set in a masked and sponged sun filled sky … and the Mama Elephant sentiment was stamped underneath.  I added some dimensional eyes with white and black Enamel Accents … and just had to layer on a little shimmer onto that cute face.  Here’s a closer look  (with apologies for the fuzzy focus!) …

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 us in the gallery.  We’re sponsored by Uniko (thanks, Bev!) … our overall winner (as voted for by the DT) will have their choice of any in stock stamp from the store … 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.

I’m playing along at …

    What a happy card…you’ve used that amazing brain of yours to pick just the right image that reflects the “it’s a good day”. Of course, in my eyes, it doesn’t hurt that it is tones of yellow and orange. It is clean and simple perfection.
