Fly Free Little Birdies

Happy Friday!!!!
Chilly one here today in Montreal...strange after being in the 80's for the last couple of days.  But I love it!  And the leaves are starting to change!  So excited for fall, since it's my favorite season :)

So there's this fun little challenge that I just love!!  Mostly to look at though because the things those ladies come up with really blow me away.  It's call 10 Minute Craft Dash.  The idea is you get a color scheme and then you have 10 minutes to create a card using those colors.  Now, if you're anything like me...speed isn't a strength...I'm slow.  So the thought of trying to make a card (that I'm happy with and looks good) in 10 minutes sort of makes me panic.  But I wanted to try! (and try, and try, and...)

My first go around didn't work out.  I had my card all planned out and thought it was super simple!  Wrong...I stopped the clock after 11:30 and still wasn't done. (16 minutes later...)
But I wasn't giving up!!  So I reevaluated my stamp set and tried for something new...and succeeded :)  With only eight tenths of a second to spare (so basically it took me 10 minutes to make this card :) )
I. Just. LOVE! This card!  My birdie (from Lawn Fawn called Fly Free..(have I mentioned how obsessed I am with Lawn Fawn yet??)) is a little crocked...but that's ok.  I was shaking like a mad woman trying to get everything done.  The main thing I learned-use less adhesive.  Since I don't have the little rollers to quickly add adhesive, I have to cut it all up and then peel off the backs...too much work.  Less is better :)

I kept my edges clean, nothing fancy with them.  And thank goodness for die cuts and sweet little buttons :)

This color scheme is so super fun, I have so many more card ideas in my head!  Though, probably won't work for the 10 minute challenge :)  I can only handle so much of that sort of panic in one day :)

But I always love this challenge, and I do hope to keep pushing myself to participate and hopefully get better with my quick creativity :)  <3
