Guest Designer: Time Out Challenge #70

An opportunity to Guest Design for the Time Out Challenge! A resounding ‘YES PLEASE!’ Was flattered to be asked, after winning this Challenge in October.

So, TOC’s delightful DT member, Sandie, showed me this picture of serenity, with the caption: Home, Sweet Home:


Fresh whites, neutrals, a pop of pink, a tinge of gold…just a bit lovely, don’t you think? I honed in on those cushions scattered across the pink lounge, and came up with this:


I have never made a rosette, but after seeing that plush, pleated cushion, I had to give it a try. Found an easy tutorial on YouTube.


Thanks so much for having me this month, lovely TOC ladies! I look forward to sharing another card, inspired by this theme, in a fortnight.

See you in the gallery!


Materials used:

  • Cardstock: Pearl white (paperstop); Pink Pirouette (Stampin’ Up!)
  • Dies: Pierced Square STAX (MFT); Lacy Scrolls (Altenew)
  • Other: large gold rhinestones (my stash)
  • Stamp: Holiday Home (retired Stampin’ Up!)
