Uniko Studio and 10 Minute Craft Dash

Okay!  So, making a card in 10 minutes or less is DIFFICULT...but, what a feeling of accomplishment once I was finished!  Exhilarating!

The Uniko Studio designers have teamed up with Pretty Pink Posh's 10 Minute Craft Dash today to bring you some QUICK, but QUALITY inspiration!  Here are the fabulous colors that we got to work with!

I grabbed what I could find in my stash in these colors...and two Uniko Studio stamp sets!

I ended up using everything here except the blue distress ink and the spiral punch...but, I grabbed some Stickles and a square punch that was nearby to create flag ends on the sentiment strip!

My finishing time was 9 minutes and 38 seconds!  OH MY GOODNESS, that was the quickest nine and half minutes ever, but I DID IT...even had time to add Stickles and knotted ends on the twine!

Here are the fabulous stamp sets that I used on my card...Uniko Studio's Pure Florals: Poinsettia and All Occasions Sentiments #4!

The retrosketches #90 was a great layout to display the poinsettia as a backdrop!

Here's how the 9 minutes, 38 seconds went down...
Cut paper to size, stamp the flower using "rock-n-roll" technique, stamp sentiment, flag the ends of sentiment strip, adhere paper, wrap panel and tie twine, add sequins and stickler!  Whew!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
