Ten Minute Card

At the Mod Squad Challenge Blog we were challenge to make a one layer card as fast as we could. Well, if I had not started with the jewels it would have been done in six minutes but adding those made it ten minutes. But I think the jewels add so much to the design. This time frame included folding the card and collecting some of the elements needed for it too!



I used the ornament and sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Season's Greetings set. The pine sprig is from the Gina K. Designs Peace and Joy set illustrated by Theresa Momber. Gina K. Designs inks used on this card are Christmas Pine and Cherry Red. I used Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury heavy based white card stock for the card so that I could use my Copics to color in the cones without it bleeding through. Worked great! I finished the card by adding jewels to the ornament.

I hope all of you are having a great week and will have a great Thanksgiving too! And to all who are traveling, have a safe journey!

God bless,
Verna

I agree, the jewels just make this card. Love both the images you used here, and the coloring of the pine cone and needles add a lot too. Great job doing it in 10 minutes!!!
