Hey there! I have something fun to share today! I participated in the latest 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge and boy was it a challenge. Be sure to check out the Craft Dash DT's creations at the blog: www.prettypinkposh.com
If you're not familiar with this challenge, it's basically two challenges in one - incorporate a particular color scheme consisting of 3 colors AND create your entire card in just 10 minutes. Here's what I came up with for challenge #12:
This card took 9 minutes and 57 seconds to complete. I was down to the WIRE, I tell ya. This was definitely the most thrilling challenge I've ever participated in. I planned out some of what I wanted to do beforehand, like chose the colors of cardstock and ink that I knew were closest to the color scheme and then chose the stamps I wanted to use. Beyond that, it was a free-for-all and wow does time fly when you're making a card. Especially when you heat emboss! What was I thinking? You'll notice I only had time to thread one of my buttons. Hmm...maybe that will be a new trend? All in all, this was so, so much fun. It's amazing to see how much time creating a card really takes and how much time the thought and preparation goes into a design. I highly recommend giving this challenge a whirl.
AND there's a prize involved! This one is sponsored by the one and only Paper Smooches! You can win a $20 gift certificate, so that's definitely worth 10 minutes of crafty chaos, right? :)
Good luck and enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!
