TIME OUT #57 - Inspired By Words

This week at TIME OUT, we are asking you to be inspired by the words:

'May All your weeds be wild flowers'

This quote is is perfect for the season (as I am waging war on the dandelions in my yard!), and we have a wonderful guest designer, Julia, from der Kleine Klecks, who is sharing some inspiring designs!

Here is my take on the words:

I started out by sponging some Distress Inks onto the card base - normally I use bright colours but this time I went more "earthy" with Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, and Broken China. I splattered the background with some Perfect Pearls. I added a panel die cut with a large stitched rectangle and a large stitched oval with some foam tape to the card base, and then I added in the Memory Box Frangia Bouquet die cut - layering both under and over the oval panel. The Altenew greeting was heat embossed on some vellum for the finishing touch.

So make sure you take some TIME OUT to join us for this inspiring challenge - we can't wait to see how you are inspired!

Thanks for stopping by!
