WOYWW - 10 Minute Craft Dash #13 - May Arts Style

Get ready for a fun challenge!  May Arts Ribbon is sponsoring the 10 Minute Craft Dash on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog.  That means you have 10 minutes to create a project using the inspiration photo.

Anyone who knows me or has read my blog for awhile knows that lightning strikes more often than I complete a card in 10 minutes but with the help of a May Arts Satin ribbon flower that I had made earlier, I was able to pull it off!  I actually made quite a few of these in different colors to keep on hand.  

It took me...


I shocked myself!  You are allowed to get your supplies out in advance and I used that time to think out my design before I started.  

Go here to ( for the challenge details and to see the Pretty Pink Posh DT's creations.  Did you see that pretty stash of ribbon at the top of the page?  You could win it just for playing along so get your timer set and do the 10 Minute Craft Dash!

Supply List:
Cardstock - Papertrey Ink; Echo Park Paper Co.
Ribbon - May Arts Single Faced Satin (KK16), 1.25" Taupe Silk (SK35), Olive Green Leaves (BY16) 
Stamps - Papertrey Ink
Other - Want2Scrap stick on pearls

It's also time for WOYWW 196 on Julia's Stamping Ground so you can see what's on workdesks around the world.

Here's a shot of my desk back to messy normal.  I did get my new cubes up so that I could put more of my ink within arm's reach.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pin It!

10 minutes to make a card! Good grief, I might have just about cut all my papers to size and inked up my stamp in that time!! Yours is lovely though, nice to see the messy desk make a return!
