Challenge Time!


I combined a few challenges to help me create this
 spring-themed card.
Colors were inspired by 


Happy to add that I made this card in 8:07 seconds.
I learned something about myself while creating this card.
I do not like to work while being timed.
Yikes!  I must have tied hundreds of Baker's Twine bows but this one took me 3 tries.
Whew!

The design was inspired by this sketch from


It is a fun challenge week there because you can choose any sketch from the 52 weeks.
The challenge at The Kraft Journal blog is to use any sketch so I am playing there too.
Now for the supply list:
Kraft Outlet supplies: Kraft Coverweight Cardstock
Kraft Baker's Twine
Close To My Heart Supplies:
PP: Chantilly, stamps: Hello Blooms
Die Cut flowers made with Cricut Artiste Cartridge
Buttons from Blue and Pink Assortments
Pink Glitter Gems
That was fun to combine a couple of challenges and get me out of a design slump.
Thanks for stopping by!

I don't like to be timed either, Lynn! Makes me all stressed out. ;)
Adorable card! So love the kraft base with the rounded corners, and the colors are so pretty against the background. Love the twine tie and love the flowers. The button centers and glitter drops are SO pretty!

It stresses me out to hurry through a project, too. As you know from sitting with me at Regionals, I like to take my time and contemplate. BUT you did in amazing job in 8 minutes!!

Wow Lynn, your card is beautiful! I am not a fan of crafting under pressure, but I like to challenge myself every now and then. You did fabulous! Your rocked it!

Gorgeous flowers Lynn - you crafted beautifully under pressure!
I'm in a 1920s Californian Bungalow too - but I'm guessing I'm on the other side of the globe!
So glad you joined in the fun at the 10 Minute Craft Dash. Hope to see you again soon :)
