TIME OUT challenge Guest Designer

*** This is my first post of the day so please pop back later for the first day of Uniko Studio Sneak Peeks ***

Morning Blog friends and thanks for stopping by.
Today I'm very privileged to Guest Design for the Time Out Challenge
following a surprise win last month.

Can you hear me squealing with hysteria?
What an amazing challenge blog, super duper DT and what's
more there's always something new to get your teeth into (or scissors!)

So today we have a fabulous card to CASE created by the super talented 
and wonderfully creative Kylie Purtell of Kylie is Addicted to Stamps
Here's my take on her card

and here's Kylie's card

Card Recipe:
Uniko Studio: Pure Florals - Gerbera
heat-embossed in white onto watercolour card, painted
 using Distress Inks in Picked Rasperry & Mowed Lawn
Paper Smooches: Stitched Tag Die
Crafts Too: Lattice Embossing folder
Clearly Besotted: Sweet Rose Sentiment
Ribbon, twine and gems from my stash

I'm sure you'll want to see some more fabulous inspiration 
before heading off to your craft room so please check out 
the Time Out Challenge blog and all the wonderful DT creations.

I'm also linking up at Inkspriational where the theme is 'Rose'
and although this definitely isn't a rose I've definitely used shades of rose!

A super quick edit here as having swooned over my fellow DT members
at Timeout I realise I could have linked up at the current 
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: All things Bright & Beautiful
(I'm sure my card will fit well there!)
