Time Out #44 - Sending Paris Love

This is the second week of our wonderful CASE Challenge at Time Out challenge.  The fabulous card that we are CASE-ing is from Karen Dunbrook of  Snippets:

When I went to CASE this card on the weekend, I have to admit that I was very distracted by the terrible events in Paris, and as a result, the card that I made was a reflection of my feelings.   

I sponged the rectangle panel with Hickory Smoke and then stamped over it with a Tim Holtz stamp in the same ink. I added the fleur-de-lis and the Eiffel Tower from a Hero Arts stamp set as well - also in Hickory smoke. The greeting is from Clearly Besotted - I would have like to have used a French greeting but I didn't have one that worked well. The little die cut hearts were cut from some red card stock using a Walter and Winnie die set. The red-white-blue colour scheme was intentional...

So now it's your turn - take some Time Out to be inspired by the wonderful CASE card.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Perfect card for this time. I really like the smokey grey and the collage stamping and then the pops of red add that fab touch of dimension x

  2. This is gorgeous, meaningful, and expresses what we all feel, I believe!

  3. Think that this card is a beauty and so fitted in the light of all what has happened last week! The same here; I was verry distracted... Hugs, Gerrina

  4. Lovely collage stamping, Jill, and a perfect colour palette ... a wonderful card expressing your solidarity with France. Hugs, Anita :)

  5. What a absolutely fitting card. I love it!

  6. This is the perfect card for Paris. Love how you were also able to capture the national colors, and the mood of the card is rather subdued.
