90 Minute Scramble

Today I participated in a 90-Minute Scramble that was hosted by MyPink Mexico(call me Mary Dawn) (Mary is part of the Hero Arts Flickr group). The challenge was to create a birthday card using Hero Arts stamps and one of this month's sketches. Or we could create a Christmas card using pink--a little or a lot. This is the card that I came up with for the challenge. This was the fastest card that I ever made. I could not believe that it only took me about an hour to make this card. I guess that I need to challenge myself more often. Being part of this challenge showed me that I can make a card within 90 minutes. It was fun making this card.
I cut my paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and covered the paper with forest moss distress ink. Then I sprayed water onto the Flourish Pine stamp S5247 and stamped the image onto the colored paper. To speed up drying, I applied an heat gun to the paper. For the ornament (magic of christmas CL462), I stamped onto white cardstock and embossed with white embossing power and fired brick distress ink was applied to the ornament and then the ornament was cut out. The sentiment (Very Merry Christmas CL543) was embossed and for the finishing touches I added two clear gems. I was very pleased in how my card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate the comments.
