Read Relax Repeat card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite ThingsHere's my take on the inspiration photo. I used the bold, bright color scheme and the shape of the rounded chair and end table as a starting point for my design.  After cutting a trio of big pierced circles in a mix of bright colors, I arranged the circles on a white cardstock panel layered on to a blue card base.

The die cuts were topped with a sweet image featuring a girl curled up reading a book from the My Favorite Things Our Story stamp set.  The image was colored in shades to coordinate with the circles.  To go with the image and the challenge's "hang out" theme, I stamped the "read relax repeat" sentiment on a narrow fishtail flag strip and added it to the panel, extending out from beneath the edge of the raised image.  A trio of lime green enamel dots arranged around the image completed the design
