Challenge 238 - Inspired by Words

Hello friends of Time Out!

It's time for a new challenge at Time Out! We challenge you to be inspired by these words: "Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends." 

There is so much room for interpretation here. You can use rainbow images and/or colors, you can go with the message of the quote and be free with the design... maybe a message of encouragement with a touch of gold... these are just some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

We are generously sponsored by Varada Sharma. We will have 2 winners - one chosen by the Design Team, and one chosen at random. Winners will receive a $15.00 store credit to shop at Varada's store.

This time we welcome Greta Hess of GG Creations, and winner of Time Out #235, as our Guest Designer. Greta really captured the essence of our quote so beautifully. Do take a stroll through Greta's blog and treat yourself to some wonderful inspiration. We love to hear about our Guest Designers in their own words so we can get to know them a bit. Here is what Greta had to say:

"What an honor to be a Time Out Challenges winner and to be guest designing with this talented team.  I’m a wife, doggy momma and retired nurse living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, USA.  About twenty-five years ago I discovered stamping at my local stamp store.  I'm pretty sure I kept them in business for the next year!  It was such a joy to find an artistic outlet that didn't require the ability to draw or color.  I like a variety of styles & techniques.  I'd have to say my favorite style is simple elegance.  Dry embossing, emboss resist & heat embossing have been around a long time and are still some of my favorite techniques.  Thanks to my paper crafting hobby, I now have friends all over the world.  One of hubby's retirement jobs is mailing all the cards I send!  I hope you'll find some inspiration in my card for this Inspired by Words Challenge."

HERE is Greta's fabulous card:
