10 Minute Craft Dash #32

*Note this is my second post for today.
Please scroll down to see my post for this week's Case Study Challenge.

I cannot believe it's only one week until Christmas!
I still have a list of things today, although I did cross off my Christmas baking on Monday, which was good!
How about you? Are you ready for the 25th?

Today, I have a card to share for the 10 Minute Craft Dash #31, which is Anything Goes.

I don't know why, but I struggle the most with these kinds of challenges.
It's like I need a jumping off point for inspiration.

So I went looking for one and I found this one from The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.
Isn't it pretty?

So I gathered my supplies: my embossing paste & SSS snowflake stencil 
and my Reverse Confetti Lots to Say stamp set and Tag Me dies.

And here's what I made:

I spread the paste on some aqua mist card stock.
While that was drying, I die cut my vellum and My Mind's Eye patterned paper with the end of the smaller tag in the Tag Me set.
I stamped my sentiment in versa mark and heat embossed it with some aqua embossing powder.
Then I added the banners to my card and stitched them in place.
As a finishing touch, I added the felt "stars" --- these were left over from some snowflakes I'd cut using the Papertrey Ink Fancy Flakes dies -- they're the centres from each die.

And my time?
Honestly, I don't know. 
When I went to check it, I realized that my iPod had run out of power and had shut off. :(

But I'm pretty sure it was under 10 minutes. ;)

Here's the prize that will go to one lucky challenge participant.

Thanks for looking!
