Time Out Challenge #54 - Home Sweet Home

It's Thursday and that much closer to the weekend!  I'm going to see Diana Ross in concert on Saturday so that should be fun.  I saw her years ago and it was a good concert.  Looking forward to it!
I'm also looking forward to this week's Time Out challenge.  It's our Home Sweet Home challenge where we give you a photo and you use it as inspiration.
Here's the photo for your inspiration.  Isn't this piece of furniture so cool and colorful?  I immediately thought of Basic Grey's Marrakech paper pack because it has so many of these colors in it.
Once I chose the pattern paper from the pack, I had to figure out how I was going to use it.  I chose this quilt die and die cut the pattern paper and cream paper with it.  I punched out all the pieces from both papers and inlaid all the pattern paper pieces into the cream frame.  This card is going to a good male friend of ours who treated myself, another female friend, and his date to a concert and appetizers and drinks last week.  He had extra tickets and wouldn't take money for them, so the least I could do was send a card.  I die cut the thanks die three times and stacked them.  Since it's going to a guy, I decided not to add any sequins like I usually do (it was difficult not to, believe me!).  I matted the quilt piece on the same brown cardstock I used for the sentiment.  This card is a 4.25 x 4.25 square card.

This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers. They are offering a $15 gift voucher to the winner.  Kylie, the owner, is joining us as our special guest designer.  We also have Elisabeth joining us as a guest designer.
You can see more inspiration from the team on the Time Out blog.
