Time Out #137 - Theme Challenge

Hi there!  The new Time Out challenge is a theme challenge, and the theme is Nature.
I went through my bevy of stamp sets and came across this Whipper Snapper cactus stamp.  It was perfect for this challenge as well as for a thank you card I needed.  We visited my cousin in San Diego a few weeks ago, and she and her husband graciously shared their home with us for two weeks as well as gave us their car to use for the entire time we were there.  I admired her cactus gardens while I was there, so this image was totally appropriate to send to her.  I stamped it in Memento tuxedo black and colored it with copics.  I love Whipper Snapper stamps and packages because they include a colored image that you can use for inspiration.  I die cut the image with a stitched rectangle die.  The thanks word was die cut once from green cardstock and twice from white then were stacked offset.  The sentiment was stamped with black ink and die cut with a banner die.  I added this to a piece of diagonal striped pattern paper as well as white Nuvo drops.  I also added some shimmer to the image and the word die.
You can see more from our Time Out challenge and our guest for this challenge, Lise, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

Great how you manage to use so much on your card and still let the cactus pop of the card! Hugs, Gerrina
