Hello … bonjour! We have a special challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme this time round is Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship … with the optional twist of making a one layer card. Here’s where I went with it …
I chose not to twist this time round. My scribbly blooms and leaves are from CAS-ual Fridays Peaceful Garden and are stamped directly onto the card base. I added some doodlie dots with a black pen to add to the whimsical nature of the images. The sentiment is also from CAS-ual Fridays (Mon Ami) and is white heat embossed onto a black strip. The strip was adhered flat to the base … and I was done. Except … I wondered what it would look like if the monochrome was reversed … so made this to find out …White heat embossing onto a black panel … with a black on white sentiment strip. I’m finding it hard to choose which I prefer … it changes from moment to moment … how about you?
How will you interpret our Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship theme … and will you use our optional twist? We’d love to see what you create in our gallery. This fortnight, we’re sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays. You may know that owner Michele is a breast cancer survivor and a huge champion of Breast Cancer Awareness, not only financially through her company but also through the Calling All Sistahs Blog, Encouragement Squad and Challenge, here. Do go and check it out if you’re not aware of it … so worth it … and not to be too dramatic about it, it may just save your life.
Our challenge winner, as voted for by the DT, will receive a $25 GC for the CAS-ual Fridays 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 splendid DT … and from our talented and returning Guest Designer, Marieke. There’s so much to enjoy at Marieke’s blog … go have a meander, you’ll love it!
I’m playing along at …
