Happy Birthday to the 10 Min Craft Dash!!

Hi ya everyone! I literly only have a couple of minutes, but wanted to get this little card posted for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash! I made this cutie last night, but duh...forgot to take before and after pics of my work area like I usually do...I feel worn down and there's just soooo much on my mind at the moment. I'm lucky I still know which way is up!! I rushed to take pictures of the finished card before leaving for work this morning and realized I hadn't taken pictures while making the card...sigh. UGGG!

Here's my little card....
Time: 9min 52 seconds
I started off with a kraft card base and layered on some pink cardstock then some scrap PP and scrap stamped paper (that was a time saver for sure!). I was able to use my ATG to attach the lace because I knew I was covering the top of it (another time saver!). Then I attached a length of already sewen ribbon (bought it that way...yet another time saver!!) I made my little bow and attached it and the flowers. That was the hard part! I originally wanted to go with a giant button, took the time to thread it with twine and tie a pretty bow but just couldn't get it to look right. I quickly abandoned that and grabbed the large flower...thank goodness my flower drawer is next to my table, no body has time for that kind of stuff!!! After a BUNCH of fussing I finally came up with this arrangement. I didn't have much time left so I was in a state of panic making my sentiment. I used the clear tape method that I showed ya'll in one of my Tips & Tricks segments back in June of last year. My "birthday" sentiment is a little long but I was worries about time so I had to just leave it. I'm happy with the card over's a winner in my heart and that's all that matters ;)
