10 Minute Craft Dash #31

Hi there!

Today, I have a card to share for the 10 Minute Craft Dash #31,
which is to use the colour combo on the graphic above (yellow, red & green).
Now, I have to admit that I made three cards for this challenge before succeeding at making one in less than 10 minutes. That time limit is hard, people!
The first one is here (it's the first one with the wreath -- it took me over 13 minutes)
and the second one is here (which also took me over 13 minutes).
(Maybe I need to find a 14 Minute Craft Dash Challenge. ;)  )
Anyway, after two failed cards, I was starting to get a little frustrated,
so I decided to look through my supplies to see if I had any embellishments
or journaling cards that could help speed up my card making.
I came across this super sweet Pink Paislee journaling card and used it to make my card.
I diecut the edge of the journaling card with a pinking edge border die.
I layered it over some red cardstock and SSS white woodgrain cardstock.
And I added some buttons and stitching.
And my time....... 9:12.8.
Click here to see what Paulina & the rest of the DT made for the challenge.
Here's the prize that will go to one lucky challenge participant.

I'm also linking this card up to Christmas Card Challenges #1: No Stamping.
Thanks for looking!

Sometime I struggle too with the 10 min limit lol but the most important thing is you try and try until you get a card in the limit time. And I love how it turned, that journaling card is so cute.

I just love this! I find myself using my Studio Calico Project Life kits for cards more than Project Life! Sometimes a journaling card is all it takes to make a fab card and this is one fab card!
