A Blog Named Hero: Challenge #2

Hello! Just popping in to share a card I created for the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero. The theme of the challenge is Cards with a View, so I used the Small Tag Frame Cuts to create a window on the front of my card.  

The Large Flower Background was colored using Distress Ink and Distress Markers. And the sentiment is from the Good Friends clear stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

5-minute card challenge

Hi there! Kristina recently challenged herself to see if she could make a card in under 5 minutes and even made a video to document it. Since I haven't had much time for card making these days, I decided that this would be a fun challenge to try.

Just like Kristina, I did a little pre-planning and gathered up a few supplies I would be using. And here's the card I came up with....

It took me just under six minutes to make and I consider that a success! :)

The card is 3.5" x 4.25" which I think helped me out a little bit because I had less space that I felt like I had to fill up. The tag is covered with strips of washi tape and the sentiment is from the Konnichiwa Lantern stamp set.

Jennifer also took on the 5-minute card challenge -- check out her adorable card here!
