Still time to join in at TIME OUT Challenges - Valentines & Twist Hearts


There is still time to join in over at TIME OUT Challenges! This fortnight is a theme challenge, the theme being...

 Valentines with the optional twist of Hearts

We have a FABulous sponsor for this challenge... STAMPlorationsThere are 2 ways to win prizes:

1. Twist with us (use hearts) and we will do a random draw and the winner will get a $15 voucher for the store.
2. Comment on Shery's post at stamplorations for this challenge and we will do a random draw and the winner will get a stencil pack from stamplorations.

Here is my take on the theme...

With Valentine's just around the corner I decided to make another love themed card! This time I decided to use Always and Forever combined with All Occasion Sentiments #5. The love you heart is stamped in gold and then heat embossed with crystal embossing powder. 

I then stamped the word valentine on the base card, but it is very subtle. It can be seen better in this close up...

This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Valentyne, be sure to stop by Valentyne's blog Flourishtina to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :)

The last challenge at TIME OUT Challenges was sponsored by Uniko Studio and there was a chance of winning a £15 Gift Certificate to spend in store HERE just for commenting on the post.
