Time Out Challenge # 54 - Reminder

Hi everyone, just popping in to remind you about our current TIME OUT  challenge. We have a fabulous  photo to inspire your creations:

So many colours, shapes and patterns with this one to get the imagination going!!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers and they are giving the winner a $15 gift voucher to spend in their store. Lucky!!!

I got carried away with die-cutting this week, along with a smidge of blending to capture the colours of the chest:

I began by die-cutting the stitched-rectangle die from white CS and then using my mini-blending tool with Distress Ink 'Peacock Feathers' to add some colour. I then die-cut the flowers and leaves from paint chips, glued the layers together and then adhered to the rectangle. The sentiment was stamped in black and I glued on a few co-ordinating sequins for shine. And then the rectangle was popped up on foam tape on the card front. Done!!

The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays 'Bold Wishes', as well as the flower dies from 'Friendly Flowers Fri-dies'. The leaf dies are from Paper Smooches 'Roses' and the stitched-rectangle is from Pretty Pink Posh. The orange sequins are from Neat and Tangled and the aqua sequin from Avery Elle.

I have three challenges I would like to enter:

Seize the Birthday Challenge (Floral)

Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge (April showers bring May Flowers)
