Challenge #194 - Running Stitch Design

    Welcome back for another challenge!

We have a very special challenge for you today. We are creating cards inspired by this photo:
Here is a closer look:

Our sponsor for this challenge is none other than one of our very own designers, Kim, at RunningStitchDesign
Here is some information from Kim about the inspiration bag - The inspiration for this challenge is a handmade tote bag using fabric from Cotton and Steel-Girls Club. I made the tote using a NoodleHead pattern, the Crescent Tote. The tote is fully lined and It has a zipper pocket on front, inside pockets and webbing for the handles.  Tote measures 16.5x10.5x6
All of the products in her Etsy store are handmade and she also takes custom orders! Be sure to check out her store and show her some love. 

The winner of this challenge will win the bag featured in our challenge photo!!!

Our guest designer for this challenge is Nathalie. You can find her on Instagram as wonderingwabbit
Nathalie has always enjoyed being creative. When she was younger, she always loved drawing and painting. As she matured and became a student, then career woman, got married, had kids, pets, etc., she could never find any time to express herself creatively. As her children grew a little older, she decided to just make time! She really wanted to bring some Zen into her hectic life. In doing this, Nathalie did not want to commit to large projects, so she figured, why not cards? Searching for supplies online was a bit overwhelming, but she started to try different brands and products to see what she liked. Turns out she simply adores her pencils 😍. Take a look at her work! Nathalie has mad coloring skills!!! Nathalie says that she thoroughly enjoys Timeout Challenges because they are always different and allow a lot of room for interpretation without too much restriction. Here is her wonderful make for our challenge:
