Craft Dash

Paulina at Pretty Pink Posh is starting a new challenge

I have never actually timed myself when making a card but do know that sometimes it seems to take forever because I can't decide on whether it looks exactly right. So this time I went with first option on everything. I took me 6 min 24 sec. for this card.

I have had my granddaughters for 2 weeks and they loved playing in my craft room. They left a bunch of scrap cuts so I just opened my scrap file and pulled out some papers. The green is reversible DP from SU. The butterfly strip if from "Butterflies and Blossoms" pack. The butterflies are actually orange and match the orange strip. Don't know why that color doesn't show better. Tied around is green/white twine.  The scallop cut is an EK border punch. Sentiment is SU also. The scallop is cut from the front edge and the polka-dots are on the inside bottom. It also has a butterfly strip border.Here is the inside so you can see how that was done.
I am definitely bookmarking Paulina's site and look forward to more of her challenges.
