PTI's Timed Challenge

     The card I am posting is one made for day 3 of PTI's anniversary challenges. It is PTI's Timer Challenge.
The goal is to gather all the supplies you need in 7 minutes and complete the card in 17 minutes or less. Let me tell you; this is a big challenge for me. I don't think I ever made a card in 17 minutes (okay 24 minutes if you include the time for gathering supplies) I am a 45 + minutes gal! It takes me forever to think of a layout and color combination.
   Well, I had been eyeing one of the sketches Nichole had in her first challenge. So I decided I would use that.


Here are the supplies I gathered in 7 minutes. Wasn't sure if it would be a birthday card or thank you so I gathered a lot of stamp sets for the sentiments.

Here is my completed card. (Sorry about the poor photo quality. It is night here and with the touch of glitter, the glare ruined the photos that were taken at a different angle.

I stamped Fancy Flourishes in Aqua Mist on the card base and applied Prima Glitter on the Fancy Flourished stamped on the panel which I propped up with foam dots. I had 18 seconds to spare, but mind you, while making the card, I didn't clean off my stamps, or cover my ink pads or even pour the glitter back into the vial the way I normally do. This was a fun challenge. Maybe I'll try it again another time.  Thank you for taking a peek.

I'm amazed that you managed all that detailing in the time. Me I couldn't even contemplate doing it in the time so well done you.
