Flourishes Speed Challenge

I woke up this morning and found this Speed Challenge at the Flourishes Blog - have you seen this month's new releases?  I just had to try!  We are to use this sketch and get a card made by 10:00 am Central Time - I think I've done it!  Whew!!  Here is the sketch:



And here's my card.  I used mostly designer papers, given my almost 2 hours time constraint, except for the stamped flower and the sentiment.  I LOVE these aquas and yellows together!

Here's a detail picture:


supplies: cream cardstock, papers from October Afternoon Thrift Shop and Fly a Kite, BoBunny Buttercup Dot (for flower), Hero Arts CG291 Three Dotted Flowers, inked with versamark, embossed in white, and shaded with wild honey distress ink, CL131 SparkleClear Messages, poppy chalk ink, EK Success scallop edge punch, Nestabilities oval die-cut, ecru lace from Carole, aqua pearls from Virginia

  10. So gorgeous - love the colors and the lace! Can't believe how quickly you can come up with a beauty like that! I am of the opinion that there is no color that turquoise will not complement. And, it is one of my favorites from way back!!
