Time Out & The Flower Challenge

It's a two-for day, today!

My card goes to Time Out #85 and The Flower Challenge #9 - I think you'll see why... I just couldn't resist that hammock!

 
A few Distress Oxides, MFT Tropical Floral, and
woven kraft cardstock ... voila!
 
 
 
 
Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there - hope you've taken a little time out in the hammock yourselves today!

How do you think of these things, Michele? Better question. How do you execute them so perfectly?

Oh Michelle, I apologize for the mix up, I'm doing my commenting for the other DT challenge over at Shopping our Stash and the wires in my brain got crossed. But, all that aside, your card is indeed gorgeous, the flowers and the detail of the paper strips make for a lovely card.
Thank you for sharing with us over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, (phew!! I got it right this time, LOL!!) I do hope you come back and play again next time.
Hugs, (again)

This is such a cool idea, love the weaving, goes with the challenge photo perfectly. And love how you multi-coloured the leaves with green and teal, it really captures the tropical feel. A stunning card and you know I'm always happy to see you at TIME OUT!

This is wonderful, totally unique and so skillfully made! The weaving is the perfect backdrop for your artsy flowers and leaves. This really stands out in our gallery! Thanks for joining us at Time Out!
