Guest Designing for Time Out #84

Today I have the honor of being the guest designer for Time Out Challenge #84!  How did that happen?  you may ask ... because they picked this card of mine as a winner ... oh it could happen for you, too!  Play along with us!

The fabulous T.O. team have given me a quote to work with for this challenge:

 
OH so true that!  I had no problem choosing which set of florals I'd use ... wait... look again!  Your eye may see Hydrangea, but look a wee bit closer ...
 
 
This is created with The Bee's Knees:  Winged Things - from Stamplorations - thanks again, Shery!
a prize won with that winning butterfly card!  You cannot imagine how long I've had it on my wish-list!
 
I've simply cut that stamped, and Zig-colored, panel using an MFT Stitched Speech Bubble Edge die, and hand-lettered the quote!  the largest of the 'petals' was fussy cut, and popped up on foam dots!
 
 Isn't it time you made your own creation based on that wonderful quote?  I do hope I've inspired you just a little bit ... if not, all you need to do is visit the Time Out challenge blog ... you'll be just as amazed as I am!

so good to have you as our GD and with such a stunning card. I love how the sentiment curves. And how you used the butterflies to create a flower. Naturally the colour is perfect! I am so honoured that this delight of a card is displayed on my coffee table in the lounge x

Oh dear Michele, this is simply darling! I love that the butterflies create the look of a hydrangea and the coloring on them is fabulous! I also am so inspired by the creation of your own sentiment. So much to take from this sweet card! Congrats on your guest design spot too. I can't think of anyone who deserves it more than you.
