The Lord Planted the Seed - Ten Minute Craft Dash


Happy Half Way Day!

(Very Honored that this card was chosen as a Ten Minute Craft Dash Favorite on 10/29/12)

I needed a breathing de-stress break, so I headed to my craftroom before bed last night and made a quick card using the Ten Minute Craft Dash as my inspiration.  Normally, this would make me sweat because I am a slow crafter, but I am making myself get comfortable with quick and simple thanks to this challenge. I also had time to think about what stamps I wanted to use since the challenge posted.

I started by stamping the flower silhouette on a white panel in Melon Berry ink, the sentiment in Rose Bud ink, and butterfly in Hawaiian Shores ink.  Pink patterned paper from my snippet pile was added to the upper portion of the panel and a unique border was created by taking a piece of scrap patterned paper and die-cutting it twice using a heart border die-cut and ric rac border die-cut to make this unique custom border to go across the bottom of my panel.  A length of ribbon was wrapped around the panel and tied in a bow.  A final finishing touch was adding an Aqua Boutique Button.  All that was left is to add foam adhesive and apply to my card base and I was all done! 

Total time for this card was 9 minutes and 4 seconds. I am not sure I will ever get under 9 minutes, but I am happy to make the deadline! I am just happy time doesn't start till after supplies have been pulled. Otherwise I would be in trouble. :-)

There are a couple of days left to play if you want to give the challenge a try.

FAB, FAB card Tammy - LOVE it:)
It would take me 10 minutes just to tie the bow LOL!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Ooo, I like those colors together! They make a bold impact, yet it has such a softness about it because of the stamps you used.

Here's hoping we will both still have power after 'Sandy' arrives!
