The Speed Craft Challenge- Make number 2

Hi everyone,

Yes,its time for another speed craft challenge in conjunction with these wonderful crafty friends of mine: IngridPamelliaNikkiKeren. Please pop along to their blogs to see what they have created too,you won't be disappointed ;)

The lovely Ingrid picked the the theme for the challenge this time around,a colour based one featuring this colour palette

From this rather lovely place here,serious eye candy huh?!

Gorgeous isn't it? I do have a couple of pieces of sea glass and they are really stunning.

The 'rules' are the same. 10 minutes to create a little something for us to share with you....why...because we are mad like that :)

Firstly,I was a little naughty with the challenge this time around. The chloe die cut piece was already done and I stopped the stopwatch only a couple of times to grab another stamp and my dymo machine but the time fairly reflects how long it took......aren't I an honest gal!

And here is the finished card. The lighting is not particularly great at the moment so this is the best shots I could get.

Fresco paints,memory box chloe die,stamps are: Inkadinkadoo and the little birdie one is from the latest Craft Stamper magazine. Thanks to Trish Latimer for the inspiration here,this months edition is a brilliant read and this stamp is super cute.

A big thanks to Pamellia ( see her link above) otherwise I wouldn't have seen these leaf stamps and oh my they are wonderful. Have a look at her Autumn card while you are on her blog....AMAZING creation.

I don't want to make a big fuss but I might not be around as much for posting or visiting blogs as my mum is really poorly in hospital at the moment so thats what will be taking up my time.

Hope you like it
