Ten Minute Monday (a day early)

I'm not sure what's been going on lately, but I just haven't really felt like making much. I've tried taking a break from cardmaking. So far, that hasn't really worked. So I thought, maybe I'd try a challenge. I went with Dawn's colour challenge. The colours I used were New Leaf, True Black, and Vintage Cream. The challenge helped, somewhat... I made one card, but that's it. It was a quick one too. Perfect for ten minute Monday though. I love all the handmade flowers I've been seeing, so I made a few using a few stamped die cuts and some hand cut, crimped leaves. I cut into each petal to make it more dimensional, then popped up each layer. The leaves were cut out, then I folded them in half and ran them through a crimper. Supplies: Stamps: Friend By Definition, Birthday Basics Paper: Vintage Cream, New Leaf, True Black Bitty Dots Ink: True Black Accessories, etc.: Corner Rounder, Blossoms die, button, crimper, pop dots, twine, ribbon

  4. Ohhhhhh, I love your take on Dawn's challenge. This is an awesome card. I just may have to case it. what exactly are people using for the text background if you don't have a text stamp - - - any suggestions from anyone out there? Your mojo might be down right now, but you did GREAT on this challenge.
