Hello … bonjour! We’ve just started our delicious new challenge at Time Out … this fortnight we have a theme for you … it’s Embellishments (Two Or More) … with the option of making a one layer card. Here’s where I went with it …
As you can see, I decided not to go for the one layer option, but created lots of dimension in my smooshed and splattered leafy wreath, with three layers of the Memory Box Stitched Maple Circle Frame (thanks, Jeanne!), all intertwined and popped up on foam dots. Even though these lovely leaves are maple, they put me in mind of the vines that surround us … hence my colour palette of spring-fresh greens and purples. Yes, I know the pearly ‘grapes’ look almost black, but they really are purple (see just below, you can see the hint of colour!). The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti, stamped and white heat embossed onto some coloured card stock, die cut with a Hero Arts Infinity circle die and adhered flat inside the wreath. I used a miniscule gem to top the i in beautiful … my second embellishment.
How will you interpret our Embellishments (Two Or More) theme … and will you use our optional one layer twist? There are so many different goodies you can use to dress up your card … we’d love to see what you create in our gallery. This fortnight, we’re sponsored by Birch Press Design who are offering a $20 GV to a randomly drawn player who uses the one layer option. As usual, our overall winner will be chosen by the DT … and will be invited to guest design with us in a future challenge. Details are over at the Time Out blog … along with loads of lovely inspiration from our brilliant DT … from the amazing Jeanne, who is on the Birch Press Design Team and blogs at A Kept Life … and from our talented and returning Guest Designer, Andrea at K and A Creative Moments. Why not pop over for a visit with Jeanne and Andrea … you’ll love what you find … and you can always say hello while you’re there!
