Papertrey Ink Anniversary Timed Challenge

I suppose I don’t do very well with timed challenges.  I started out creating a card for the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Timed Challenge, grabbing my 7 supplies and going to work on it.  But it quickly spiraled out of control, and I kept ‘needing’ to add things to it.  My 7 supplies turned into… quite a few more.  I’ll show that card on another day.

So I finished that card and started a different one with 7 new supplies, and here is the result:


The supplies I used:

1. A pre-stamped, pre-colored, pre-glittered Year of Flowers Lily of the Valley image from my stash box that has been waiting to be used since our last end-of-summer family vacation.
2. Kraft Cardstock.
3. White Cardstock.
4. Pre-cut Double-Ended Banner from my stash box.
5. Delightful Dahlia sentiment stamp.
6. Pure Poppy Ink.
7. Moroccan Motifs impression plate.


And a snapshot of my phone timer at 12 minutes 20 seconds, etc.


A very simple card, considering I began with some elements previously created.  But it still took me a fair bit of time.  And honestly, I might add a few rhinestones before I send this out to my mom for Mother’s Day in May.

I am also entering this into the current Color Throwdown Challenge #278, since the colors seemed to match pretty well.

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
