Time Out: Happy Birthday



After a nice break for the holidays, it is wonderful to be back at Time Out for our first challenge of the new year. Our current challenge is:
  • Birthdays - with the optional twist of sponging
For my card, I used water coloring instead of sponging.  I embossed the medallion image in white on water color paper and then used a few different water colors, a touch of thread and a few sequins before adding the birthday sentiment. For some reason, I don't make a ton of birthday cards so this is a great challenge for me to start a stash of birthday cards!

Uniko is our sponsor for this challenge.  Be sure to play along for a chance to win a gift certificate from them!


We'd love for you to check out our fabulous design team cards on the Time Out Blog as well as our guest designer's cards. We're thrilled to have you playing along with us Rema!

When I saw the colours at your card my first tought was: A Marjolein-card! I have a friend who just loves pink and orange and she likes to use them as often as she can together...
So with a happy thought I enjoyed your girly card! Enjoy the weekend!

With the thread going around your pink and orange center, it almost looks like there are petals on a flower! So fun. Love the color combo, and the black sentiment.

A Person can merely enjoy two occasions relating to him/her personally.
One, is Birthday - a day in a year.
Another, is Marriage Day - A Day in a Lifetime.
Both are most precious ones, which stay memorable for a long time.

I wish you a very very Happy Birthday to you and all Birthday Wishes fill the life with joy and blessings
