The Memory Nest Summer Sketch Challenge

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a Scrapbook Layout sketch challenge over at The Memory Nest blog.  It's a layout sketch so I had to modify it a bit to make it work for a card.

You can see the sketch and the other DT's great layouts here

10 Minute Craft Dash #21

Hi everyone.  I have another 10 Minute Craft Dash card to share.  My term on the Design Team has ended, but I love the challenges so much I'm entering as a participant!  This one doesn't have a color theme, but does have the "stars" theme in honor of Independence Day.

I was dying to use my new Stampin' Up! background stamp that I just got in the mail so that was a must use item for this card.   I also used white embossing powder and assorted istress Inks to create the background panel.  This emboss resist technique was probably not the best technique to do for a 10 minute challenge because I ended up having to cut the panel down while it was still kind of damp, even though I did dry it a bit with my heat tool, and the paper started to tear.  Oh well - live and learn.

So here's my card and I just made it with a time of 9 minutes 58.5 seconds.
