A 'Dashing' Card

Happy Holidays

OK. Apologies. This card is being shared a wee bit later than originally intended. Technical glitches and a love/hate relationship with Blogger are the main causes but let's not dwell on it. *wink*

The title of today's post refers the word 'dashing' as a verb and not a noun. Yup, I was crazy enough to try out yet another Craft Dash Challenge. That is, to create a project in 10 minutes or less based on this colour combo:

I think I was a little ambitious in heat embossing and playing with twine on a card with a time restriction, but I still came in at 8 mins 47 seconds. The most time was spent tying the bow and attaching it to the card!

Another reason I joined in the fun of this challenge is because Uniko Studio are sponsoring it. Get lucky and you could win yourself a £15 store gift certificate! :)

For the full deets on the challenge and to get some inspiration, please pop across to the challenge blog.

Keeping it super short and sweet as I'm already super late in sharing this project with you! Apologies again for that. I'm really hoping that Blogger and I can establish a better working relationship in the future! :)
