Time Out #202 - Guest Designer

Yes, that's right.  I won a challenge at Time Out with this card and they asked me to be a guest designer.  Who can refuse an honor like that.

This is the photo inspiration.

There are lots of things to inspire you.  The colors, words, decorative items, layers and texture.  What caught my eye first were the lights on the head of the bed.   I thought if I painted them right the ornaments from STAMPloratations would give the same effect.

I stamped and gold heat embossed three ornaments from the set on Bristol and colored them with Zigs.   A sentiment from the set is stamped in red and clear heat embossed which caused a spotty look from the glare.  To pay homage to the layers I bordered the panel with red and gold and put it all on Soft Stone cardstock. 

Please head over to Time Out to see what the Design Team has made for your inspiration and then make a card for the challenge.  The winner will receive a $25 gift voucher to STAMPlorations.

This is a gorgeous card, Bobby. The baubles are shining! And I am smiling at the part that the lights inspired both of us. But how did you manage to take the photo of the sheen? This has to be the best pictured card in all its shining glory! Even the Clear embossing on the red is shining. So glad to have you as our guest, welcome and thank you <3 hugs ~ Ishani
