Easy Breezy Challenge

This is my 10 minute card for the Easy Breezy Challenge on Flourishes. By doing this challenge I have a chance of winning all this month's releases at Flourishes. I used my curvy rectangle nestibility in 3 sizes. On the Kraft layer I simply kept one edge inside the fold to create the card base layer. I distressed the white and pink layers with Frayed Burlap distress ink and a sponge.
On the white layer I gold embossed the I Love Roses stamp which I swiped with Fuzzy Peach and Sweet Alfalfa Twinkling H2Os. This watercoloring took about 1 minute...swipe, swipe your done.
For a little splash of color I added strip of green moss ribbon added a slide. I left the ends hanging towards the bottom and attach each with a zot dot. Then I added a little bow made with my Bow Easy, attached with a zot dot as well.

This Inkadinkado message stamp finishes the inside. Quick and easy....the kind of card you make when you forgot and you need the card immediately. I enjoy card making that takes time so this was only for the challenge of timing myself and hoping to win the great stamps from Flourishes.
I have been up since 3 am when our pregnant Golden decided she needed to spend quality time with me and the Yorkies were not happy with this. To prevent waking everyone else...I got up and went to my stamp area to play. Unfortunately my mojo remained sleeping so I wrote some letters to friends who are retiring.
Now that everyone has left the house I am having a hard time staying awake so I think I'll put a movie on and try to watch it which actually means I will fall asleep. Talk later.
