Time Out Challenge #65 - Inspired by Words

Hi friends!  There's a new challenge over at the Time Out blog today.  This is our Inspired by Words challenge and here's the quote for you to use as your inspiration:
"Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.”
 Chad Sugg
I used a few words from the quote as my inspiration.  Love, trees, encourage.  I obviously used a tree on my card.  For the word love, I chose pattern paper with hearts on it, and for encourage I chose the sentiment hugs.  The tag was cut from watercolor paper and watercolored with some blue distress ink.  I also splattered it with more water to get some water droplets.  Then I added the die cut tree, twine, and sequins.  The next panel was die cut with a pierced rectangle die as was the pattern paper.  Finally, the base layer was run through a woodgrain impression plate (hard to see in the photo).  The tag and smaller panel are on fun foam.
Cas-ual Fridays is sponsoring this challenge (my sentiment is from one of their sets).  They are giving a $25 gift voucher to this week's winner.
You can see more from our Time Out DT and our guest for this challenge, Rema, on the Time Out blog.

So creative Lisa to make a card using so many of the words, very clever. And I love this layered design. My fav being that lovely fresh blue wash of the tag x

That patterned paper is so sweet - and looks absolutely perfect as tree leaves - especially against that watercoloured background! Really pretty card!
