A Striped 10 Minute Card

Well...I decided to do another combination challenge (even though I didn't win the last two). The Grungy Monday challenge this week is to make a "card in under 10 minutes" using of course, some of Timmy's product (you can purchase it by clicking here). You cannot even imagine how difficult this was for me, the gaudy scrapper who takes days to complete something just so it's perfect. Challenge is the absolute correct word here!!! The other one from Simon Says Stamp and Show is to make something "striped". I have tons of striped paper, so no problem. I combined the two and created "Even a Queen Deserves the Night Off", in the movement of the moment...Halloween. It took me 2 times to get it done in under 10 minutes though. I only had seconds to spare. What a great idea when you are in a pinch and have to get a card out quickly. You absolutely have to have all of your supplies ready to go and your design all planned out to complete this in 10, but so worth it when your other option is stopping at the store, searching for the right card, and being late for the occasion. Moreover, you always score extra points when you give handmade.

TH Vagabond Materials Used- TH Alterations Queen of Hearts Texture Fade (I made 2, an extra to cut hearts from for the hat)
