TIME OUT Challenge #90

I can’t tell you how much fun I had this week at TIME OUT!  The challenge this week was

Autumn with the optional twist of Speed Stamping.  

Autumn was not a problem (though I am not ready to think about fall yet!). The real challenge was in making my card in 10 minutes or less. Gratefully the definition of speed stamping excludes the time we needed to plan the layout and get all our stamps and tools ready to make the card.  I am going to be honest, I made the card TWICE.  I am not sure I want to admit how much time it took me the first time… BUT the second time it took me 10 minutes, 2 seconds.  That was good… I was really proud of myself.  This challenge was SOOO much fun.  I am not speedy.  It takes me forever to make a card.  I loved having this added challenge to test my abilities.  Thank you!

Supplies: Concord & 9th Lacey Leaf, Memory Box Cross Stitched Rectangles, Versamark, Versafine, Hero Arts embossing powder, Distress ink (watercoloring), Pretty Pink Posh sequins, gemstones

    I really enjoyed reading your post. I could have just inserted myself in it. Cracked me up that you made it twice. Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love the richness of the embossing, the inking outside the lines and the placement of the sequins. Thanks for this pearl in my day. I am still on summer vacation and not quite ready for fall either, but this card makes me look forward to it a little. I truly do love the season…
