TIME OUT Inspiration

What a happy morning it was today when I woke up and checked my email and found out that I was Honourably Mentioned in the last Time Out Challenge. I am so honoured that my card was chosen...

Time Out is a great challenge blog with an amazing Design Team and I really enjoy the challenges so of course I needed to join in the current challenge - based on this inspiration photo:

There are so many inspirational things about this photo: the wood, the tags, the natural fibers and the inspirational massages. I also love the dark brown and white combination (one of my favourites). I recently bought the Stamplorations Subway Art Builder "Dare" stamp and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to use it. Here is the card I came up with:

I stamped the sentiments in a variety of Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp inks, then die cut the tag using the Tim Holtz Framelits die. I mounted the tag onto some MME patterned paper, added a few Studio Calico wood veneer butterflies (love these!), and added some Tim Holtz linen ribbon to the top.

I will definitely link this card back to the TIME OUT Challenge and also to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge that features tags (check) and Tim Holtz (check).

Thanks for visiting!!!
