Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!

This is the first card for this year! And it's a special one because I  was invited to be a Guest Star Stamper at the ColorThrowdown challenges. The colors for it are blue, pink and green.
So here is my creation!

It's a bitter sweet one, because I'm playing with the last sketch of the Gals over at the CASe This Sketch Challenges. I will miss that challenge!
Over Christmas I treated myself to a new stamp and it's this beautiful rose from Hero Arts.

I wanted to play along with the challenge over at the As you See It Blog. It is a speed challenge and it asks to use scraps. I have a whole box with little scrap pieces that I go through from time to time, so I was happy to dig in it. This card was finished in 9.14 min.  I quickly colored it, cut it, stenciled the arrows...I was planning to do an embossed sentiment... but it didn't work out, so I had to swap it for whatever I had in the pile of scraps, because I was running out of time.

I kept it simple, since I wanted to meed the criteria of the AAA card challenge being one third of the card.

Stamps:PTI (Quilted elegance), Hero Arts (Rose Stem)
Paper: Recollections (white), 
InkTim Holtz (Salty ocean), Versafine (black)
Accessories: Enamel dots (Recollections),
 Copic markers, Stencils (My Art C)
