Happy Birthday 10 Minute Craft Dash!



The 10 Minute Craft Dash is celebrating its first birthday this month and we're having a Birthday Theme for Challenge #23. And we're celebrating in style with lots of special guests and fabulous prizes!

I decided to use the Birthday Creations Sketch at Moxie Fab World to kick start my card:


Here's what I came up with. I started with some Prima patterned paper, on which I stamped my sentiment (a PTI Think Big Favourites stamp). I cut out three small squares and stamped them using WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals set and adhered them to my card. I had enough time to spare to add some stitching (love that when that works out!) and some MME enamel dots.


And my time....


So, if you arrived here from Jennifer McGuire's blog, you can hop on over to Tiffany Johnson's blog next. You can see the full blog hop list at Paulina Nakamura's blog, where she also has sponsorship/prize information and the details of the challenge/ blog hop.

Here are some of the prizes up for grabs:



And the grand prize:


Thanks for looking!
