I blew it!  I designed my card for TIME OUT around the sketch from CASE This Sketch and then totally forgot that element until the new CTS sketch came out. Shucks!  I might have done something totally different in that case since I'm not thrilled with the card, but I'm posting it anyway.

Here's the inspiration photo:

And my card:

I don't know why but I immediately thought of my gauze paper by DCWV and then found a blackish brown paper that went with it for the card front.  Add a few tags and sentiments from My Craft Spot, tied and stapled on and it's done.  Not very dreamy or home sweet home oriented but an encouragement card.  I know a few people who could use one of those.

I'm hoping to get a lot of cards made today.  I'm so far behind on challenges I'd like to do, and have ideas for.  That's the important part, the ideas.

Have a great weekend, everybody, and thanks for stopping by.

I do love that brain textured card and I think the design is fabulous. We are always our own worst critics! The words on the labels are so well chosen for someone who needs to know they are fab and it is o.k to have that chocolate!! So pleased to see you join us again at TIME OUT Bobby x

Such a gorgeous, rich chocolatey colour, Bobby ... the gauze paper banner is brilliant ... and those teeny sentiment tags tied with twine are so cute (and how appropriate ... an eat chocolate one!!)! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

What? Gauze paper? We need to do a little shopping one day! These little tags look exactly like tea-bag tags! Really darling, Bobby!
I have the perfect chocolate cupcakes to go with this card!

I know I could do with an encouragement card every day at the moment!! I think the gauze paper was a fantastic idea and love those sweet little tags. Haven't seen those stamps before, especially love the one about eating chocolate (you can never have enough!!). I'm so glad you joined us at Time Out and hope we see you again!!
