A First for Me

I participated in a blog hop today AND an online "Release Party" for a new set of stamps from Flourishes Stamp Company. During the sneak peek of the new stamp sets we participants were given a "Speed Challenge" to come up with a card design using an assigned sketch. I've posted a photo of my card. I used paper purchased at my local scrapbook/craft store, some beads I found in my mom's crafting stash, and some paper flowers I picked up on sale at Michael's on my last trip to the big city. I had fun putting the colors and embellishments together and have decided that having a "sketch" to play off of is rather helpful for speeding things up.
