Timed One Layer card

I made this card for a timed challenge at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog
I love what you learn about yourself when you decide to take on a challenge.  I learned that I do not work well under pressure. I set the timer and began working in a frenzy. I won't go into the number of mishaps that occurred that forced me to start over again THREE times, When I felt my blood pressure rising, I decided that Joyce, this week's hostess, would want me to go back to my snail's pace in order to protect my health. So this card took me 10 minutes and 15 seconds (not counting the time it took the Stickles to dry). Most of the time was taken up by coloring.  I used pencils, but I think it might have gone faster with markers,

Grandma's Attic

The Mod Squad Challenge hosted by Donna Phelan is to use a doily somewhere on your card. I decided to make a fall card.  I stamped some faded brick card stock with an IO background stamp masking the section where I wanted my sentiment.  I love this sentiment from Gina K Designs. The sunflower and leaf flourish are from MFT.  I don't remember who made the little flower die but the acorns are from Cherry Lynn.  My camera is not compatible with new computer so my son took this pic with his cell phone and it has a little glare.  Need to decide on a new camera soon. You can see the other fabulous entries here.  I will also ent this in the Dies R Us challenge ,Thankful. http://diesruschallenge.

Blue Doves

Got this Dove and Holly set from Flourishes when they had a huge sale last year so I decided to bring it out and try coloring it.  I still need practice but I decided to enter it in the Blue Christmas challenge at Mod Squad.
