Time Out: Be Fierce



Happy Friday Eve my friends!  I'm back to share a card for the current challenge over at Time Out. We have this super fun inspiration photo below for you to play along with this week. There are so many elements you can pick out...from the banner to the hot balloons or the trees and houses. I went for the little bird that is carrying the banner.  The birds are from our fabulous sponsor Stamplorations. I love the floral images in the bird and had fun inking it up in a few colors.  This card is going to a friend who is currently in treatment for breast cancer...so I thought the sentiment should be strong...yet have a soothing image. I love to make cards for a specific person in mind.

A big thanks to Stamplorations for sponsoring this challenge and offering a $10 gift certificate to the winner and a random winner can pick one of six stamp sets.  

I hope you get to come over to Time Out and play along with us.  And of course, go check out our fabulous guest designer, Andrea...you will love her projects!

And that sweet, sweet bird...I'm sure your friend will feel the love and gentleness you're sending, and this will definitely help her to stay strong. Beautiful card, Lynn. Just love this one!!
