Another go at making a quick card

Hello Blogland,

Since I successfully made a card within 10 minutes last week, I have been waiting patiently for the new challenge to appear on the Pretty Pink Posh blog. I just can't wait to join in again! Finally this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash #25 is here and I had another go during the weekend.

I also decided to play along with the Seize the Sketch #3 and use the following sketch:
Here is the card I made.

Pictures from the side and close up.
So...... did I make it within 10 minutes? Drum roll........
Nope! It took me nearly twice as long to make this card. Altogether I spent 19 minutes and 33 seconds. Not good! Oh well~ I did try. I spent a lot of time on stamping those stars in the jar but I do want to get them right. I love the glittery stars flying out of the jar and my use of sequins. I love this card so much that I even made another colour version of it.

I also want to enter this card to Lawnscaping Challenge #65: These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things....
I've used my favourite Lawn Fawn stamp - Summertime Charm, Copic marker pens, Stickle and Washi tapes to create these cards. I really love them!! ^_^
If I've got time, I will definitely have another go at the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge. It just shows, it is not as easy as it looks!!



  1. How fun! Those stars are beautifully placed in the jar. Mahalo for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment.

  2. Time just flies when you're crafting, doesn't it?
    Your end results are lovely though, even if they took a little longer than you'd hoped!
