Time Out Challenges Reminder

Hi friends!

I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at Time Out. We have one of our theme challenges for you and this time the theme is Relaxation. If you choose to use our Optional Twist and make a one layer card you have a chance to win a $25 voucher to our sponsor Newton's Nook

In my card I'm using Newton's Book Club stamps and Newton's Book Club dies. I find reading very relaxing and even more so when reading next to someone you really like! :) For the background I used an Echo Park backgorund stamp, stamped with white pigment ink on navy card for a subtle night sky. The Newton image is colored with Copics.  I added a paper strip with black lines to the left edge of the card, I felt it needed some black. :) I hope you like it, I think it turned out very cute!

Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and for more inspiration from our design team and guest designer Marieke . Play along and you could be chosen to guest design as well! Happy crafting! 

This card is made for a special someone in my life! 

Inky Paws Challenge: Summer theme 
When July turns into August here in Finland the evenings begin to darken again... a good way to enjoy those dark nights is to curl up with a good book with someone you love!
