Quick Card

Hello All,

Today I will be playing along with As You See it Challenge and the Rainbow Card Challenge. Their challenge was to create a card in ten minutes or less. Well, challenge accepted! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Another part of their challenge is to use scraps. No problem! All I had to do was just look at the piles on my craft table of projects that either failed or items kept for a future card. These are my scraps from my craft table turned into a card.

The stenciled dots background is a scrap from a failed project. I went to recycle it but then.... Why? All I did with the scrap was cut a strip off the bottom and placed the paper at an angle and added the strip to the card. It took a second to do but I think it has a fantastic impact.  

So it just sat on my table. I also rounded up a scrap of wood patterned paper and the diecut sentiment. Cut the shadow from the wood scrap and placed the sentiment on top. The sequins are the only thing I had to 'get' and probably took the longest to place- 4 minutes to be exact.

Challenges Entered:
As You See It Challenge: Challenge #241 - Speedy Scraps
Total time: 10 minutes 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.

Ahh... the treasures that are in the scrap bin! Love the way you've added the wood-grain shadow to the die cut. It really ties in with those lovely stencilled circles. Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge.

The finishing touches are often the most time consuming but your card is a triumph in 10 minutes - and yes, it would have been a crime to throw away that perfectly useful stencilled background Shawna! Thanks for taking up my speed stamping scrap bin challenge over at As You See It this week!

I love the wood theme of your card and the stenciled background works so well with it! I also really like the impact of that separate strip at the bottom and the angle of the main panel. Thanks for getting your adrenaline pumping with us at As You See It Challenges.

Great job of creating this card using "failed projects" in under 10 minutes. I like the offset orientation of your stenciled panel. Very unique and interesting. I'm impressed. Thanks for joining us at Rainbow Card Challenge.
