10 minute Mothers Day Card!

I've been following the 10 minute craft dash on the pretty pink posh blog for awhile now and finally had 10 minutes to try one... he he he! 

I needed some mothers day cards to send out... yep that's THIS weekend... so I thought it would be the perfect chance to try the dash!

Here's the challenge - you have to use the colors and make your card in under 10 minutes.  I love the yummy colors - they reminded me of the beach and since my mom loves the beach, I reached for my By the Tide Stamp set. 

I thought this might be hard to do so I combined it with a sketch challenge that looked pretty simple from retro sketches.  I got out all my paper and stamps and then set the timer on my phone.. 

Here's the sketch:

Here's what I came up with:

Here's my end time -- just a tad over 8 minutes! Yeah! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... kind of fun too. I think it definitely helped to have a sketch to start with... sometimes I take FOREVER to figure out the layout for my cards so the sketch made it easy!!

stamps: By the Tide (SU), retired SU sentiment
ink: calypso coral, crumb cake, pool party
paper: calypso coral, crumb cake, pool party, white
other: bakers twine
