Time Out - 10 Minute Fail!

Hello bloggers!

Time Out's latest challenge is an absolute nightmare for a creative procrastinater like myself: Autumn with the optional twist of Speed Stamping.  

I seem to remember there used to be a card challenge called '10 minute card dash' and I never entered as the thought of making a card in so little time filled me with horror.  Sometimes it takes me 20 minutes just to decide where to put the sequins:

Of course, what I planned and what I produced are two totally different things. I made a circle mask and envisioned a crisp, stamped circle of WMS Autumnal leaves with a PTI sentiment perfectly placed underneath.  Unfortunately the stamping left a blurry edge as the ink didn't adhere to the textured card stock too well. In panic I reached for the brown marker to create some faux stitching around the edge. It looked like something a 5 year old had made. So I rooted through my stash for a smaller circle, cut it out and plonked it on to the card case. In total it took me 14 minutes and 12 seconds. Considering I had to make the mask, die cut the panel, create the base, do the stamping and look for stuff inbetween I don't think I've done that bad a job! What do you think?

Enjoy the rest of your Friday!
