Challenge #139 Inspired by Words

Hi all friends of Time Out!
We are back with a new challenge for the next fortnight. It's time for one of our Inspired by Words challenges and we are being inspired by an Oscar Wilde quote below: 

You can take inspiration from the whole quote as it is or just pick one word like flowers or moon.... Or how about combining several words from the quote... How about a happy card with a moon and flowers! :)

This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Catherine Pooler. Our winner, chosen by the design team, will receive a $25 coupon to Catherine Pooler store. Amazing, right! 

We are happy to welcome back Claire as our guest designer. Claire is a regular player here at Time Out and her blog Life on the Scrap Heap is filled with inspirational cards. Do visit her and leave her some love, you'll love her blog if you haven't browsed it before! 

Now let's have a look how Claire and our design team members have been inspired by the Oscar Wilde quote.
