Time Out #158 - A Special Challenge

Hi everyone!  We have a special challenge going on over on the Time Out blog.  Please read below for more information.
Why a Special Challenge?

Today is Epilepsy Awareness day and we want to help raise awareness of this condition.

Purple is the colour for Epilepsy and a purple ribbon represents Epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a complicated condition that is often misunderstood. Many see seizures in the media as convulsive seizures but there are many types of seizures-many are silent and you wouldn't even know they were happening!
Rather than us explain Epilepsy in detail to you-take a look at this link to find out more.
Also Sandie, our team leader, has epilepsy and she tells you her experience of living with this condition-so visit her blog if you want to know more.
Plus there is a hop going on to raise awareness of Epilepsy with some super Guest Designer and some prizes along the way. Friketa is organising this-pop on over and hop along!

 We chose 'friendship' as our 'optional twist' as we thought it would be nice to send a purple card to a friend to make them smile!
I'm loving gnomes lately, so I chose this cute girl gnome and colored her in shades of purple.  I added some purple gingham paper and die cut a scallop edge on one side.  The sentiment is keeping with the "twist" of friendship.  I added purple crystals and star dust stickles to flowers and heart for some sparkle.   I hope you will join us in this special challenge!
You can see more from our Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Kavya, on the Time Out blog.
