I am a Senior Lady !

Hey there blog friends, todays post is a quick challenge card I made for the ten minute craft dash. I feel like lately I have been partaking in these challenges for a few reasons... other than the fact that the craft dash has an amazing design team... I find that having a ten minute time limit really helps me get motivated to craft after exhausting training days. . . for those of you who dont know, I am a now US figure skating GOLD medalist competitor. This past weekend I took my last and final test in my sport , its the highest accomplishment and qualifies you to compete at the regional event at the Senior Ladies level. Anyway it was amazing, I had taken this test back in august of 2012 and Failed.... It was just too soon after my June 17th heart procedure and my stamina with nerves got the best of me... this time around I passed with flying colors it was a life defining moment that I will never forget... I wanted to share it with you all..

anyway I had made this card a few days before my event but because of all the chaos am only posting it now... It took me 9 Min and 52 seconds... I was sweating bullets because I did not think I was going to be able to finish it within the ten minutes but I did. I think it took so long because of all the die cuts I cut and embossing... Oh and I had to stamp the Thinking of you stamp twice... since I accidentally stamped the sentiment off the die cut area. Okay well here it is. I must say this color combination is new to me but i do like it... Oh and to save time I cheated and only stamped the edges of the background paper since it was going to be hidden by the second embossed card stock layer.
