10 Minute Craft Dash #20

Holy moly! For some reason I thought there was more time, and  then WHOOPS - I nearly didn't get my card for the current Craft Dash linked up in time. It was a bit of a gong show making this card - my mp3 battery died partway through timing (not to fear - from habit I kept looking at the wall clock), I dropped my scissors, the stamps...honestly.

Supplies: grey and pink cardstock from Bazzill; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Dried Marigold distress ink; Stampendous floral block stamp; Lawn Fawn thanks; pink rhinestones from Dollarama

I didn't have any cardstock that matched the orangey colour, so I began my time by swiping white cardstock with the Dried Marigold pad so it had a little time to dry before stamping on it & punching it out. The floral block was stamped, the images cut apart, and then reassembled into a graphic flower. The gems were a last-minute touch & ta-da! Squeaked in just under 8 minutes. Now, if I could stop DROPPING things, maybe I could shave a minute off?

Serious graphic coolness! Awesome layout and using those flower tiles was genius! Nice gem placement too.

I still haven't tried this challenge. I fear it would turn into an epic meltdown!

Looks like I've probably missed this CD, and I had my card planned out and everything, maybe next time lol. Love your take on the colours and such a clever idea to create your own coloured paper!

This is why I don't do this challenge -- way too much pressure for me. This card is awesome! Nicely done under time constraints.

I love that you were creative on your use of the orange colors- smearing ink on a white piece of cardstock was genius!

Thank you for playing along in this 10 Minute Craft Dash, Jessi! Hope to see you for the new challenge that starts on Wednesday! :)

Butterfingers! LOL! Seriously, I would NEVER be able to make a card in 10 minutes or less, let alone such a cute one like you made!
