TIME OUT #245 — We Challenge You To Be

This week, 
Time Out is challenging us to be COLORFUL.  I used Lawn Fawn's Sweet Smiles.  I love this sweet gumball machine and it offers a great way to add color!  I stamped and Copic colored the image, then fussy cut the inside of the gumball machine to create a shaker.  The mini balls are from Dress My Craft...and I couldn't resist them for this project.  This card is for the stash I am making for Little Birthday Angels, a local organization who holds a birthday celebration for every homeless child living locally. 

We are happy to be sponsored by Lawn Fawn this challenge! In addition to the sponsor prize, the winner will also guest design in a future challenge. 

Be sure to check out this week's Guest Designer, as well as the wonderful inspiration provided by the design team! Drop by their blogs and leave them a little love.

Enjoy!  I am looking forward to your inspired creations in the gallery.
