17 Minutes or Less

Papertrey Ink is having a fabulous celebration of it's 7th Birthday with this month's release that includes daily challenges.  Today's challenge is called The Timer challenge and these were the rules:
  • You have 7 minutes to grab 7 supplies to use on your card.  This needs to include your ink, paper and stamps too, so maybe you should be sure to grab the basics first and go from there!  (You do not need to count adhesive as one of your limited supplies.)
  • Then create a quick card in 17 minutes or less using the supplies you selected!
I started my card at 11:17 pm and finished it at 11:30 pm - so it took me 13 minutes.  I used 1) paper,        2) Lovely Layers Die set, 3) black ink and 4) a sentiment from Polka Dot Parade #8. (If I need to count each die separately - the total would be 7!)

My colors were inspired by the Card Concept challenge - Use Monochromatic Pink - I think my card falls in the Clean and Simple category.
My design was inspired by this week's Cas(e) this Sketch
Are you watching the Sochi Olympics?  I'm going to have to arrange my stamping around the events I want to see.  I don't have a TV in my craft room but there is one where I have my computer.  So I can't stamp and watch - but I can blog and watch!

Stamps:  Polka Dot Parade #8
Paper:  White, Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet - PTI
Ink:  Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  Lovely Layers Die set - PTI, foam dots.
