Uniko Studio sponsors Time Out Challenge ....

....  Good morning all!  I'm joining you this morning with a fun post - Uniko Studios is sponsoring the first TIME OUT Challenge of 2015 - photo inspiration and there are prizes too (see below).  The whole team is joining in with the challenge and this is my card:

Wish - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Time, Big & Bold Wish
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Baked Brown Sugar
Dies: Uniko Studio - Graphic Flowers
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Baked Brown Sugar, Crushed Curry; Craft Concept EF - Woodgrain; Clear Embossing Powder; Felt; Sequins


Isn't the photo super?  I took the following inspiration from the photo - the wooden planks, the bold word and the graphic flowers on the second pillow from the left.  This month's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays - CFC#135 is to use felt and sequins, both used on this card, so I'm playing along with them too.  I cut a mat layer of brown card onto which I adhered my wood grain panel (white card embossed and rubbed over with brown ink).  I stamped the word "wish" onto yellow card using Versamark, embossed with clear powder and fussy cut it out.  I attached it to the card with dimensional tape.  I used the Graphic Flower dies to recreate the flowers - one in felt and two on paper.  I added sequins to the centre of each flower.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of brown card and on the white card I added the word "big" to finish the sentiment - Wish Big!  I also stamped a few more graphic flowers.
