A quick card


Just popping in to share the card that I made for the latest 10 Minute Craft Dash, where the challenge is to create a card in less than 10 minutes using the colour palette on the logo above.

I decided to ink up my new PTI Pedal Pusher set. I found some coordinating Authentique patterned paper and got to work...

Now, I have to confess, this is my second attempt. For the first one, I stamped on rustic white cardstock, using the same design.... but I messed up on the basket filler. I stamped the flowers green, thinking they were suppose to be leaves... sigh. So, I started over.

Because I was using the same design (and could reuse the scalloped edge that I diecut using my heart border die), this one went quite quickly. Here it is:


I decided to use some Crate Paper as my background this time. I even had time to add stitching, which made me happy. :)

And my time...


Thanks for looking!

Beautiful card! Love the purple bike!

Meredith MacRitchie said...

I can tell you're not at all disappointed in that bike set!! ;)

What Crate Paper is that? I don't recognize it!

This turned out great, and the layout works with your bike so well - that stamp would totally elude me, but you've been doing great with it.

Thanks for playing with the Craft Dash Leigh!!
