Elegant embossed birthday card + 10 Minute Craft Dash

Hi everyone, I know it's Saturday, but I wanted to pop in with my entry for the 10 Minute Craft Dash over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog. I'm running down to the wire with this one in more than one way!! The challenge ends today and I took the full 10 minutes to create my card! I'll keep this post super short....

Before: I pulled out all of my supplies and dry embossed some chocolate, cream & sage cardstocks

After: What a mess, but I did it!!! (ticks me off that I wasted time punching circles that I didn't need...should have planned better!!)

My creation with literally only a couple of seconds to spare:

It only took a couple of minutes to put the card together but punching those circles cost me a ton of time, I should have punched them before starting.  I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and just had to make one with my own little spin. I have to admit to 2 little bloopers. 1st one is that I had to leave off an element. Since I used sheer ribbon, I planned on using a strip of cream cardstock under it to cover the top of the punched circles and 2nd, after the time stopped I did a little "clean up" on some tape runner that was peeking out under a few of the circles. I still love the outcome and think I'll visit this layout again sometime.

Don't forget to join in on the fun on the DeNami Addict Facebook page. I'm giving away a wonderful DeNami gingham background stamp and all you have to do is "like" the Addict FB page and leave a comment on the special post (ends 3/26/13). Thanks for stopping by!!
