10 Minutes or Less Challenge #120

Here is my card for this week's 10 Minutes or Less Challenge!  I had dreamed of making a 3D project for this week but work and life got in the way, so I opted for a CAS (Clean and Simple) Card.  I was stumped by these colours at first and I don't know why, because they are so pretty together!  I inked up my new Watercolour Trio Set with my Stampin' Write Markers.  I actually do not own any Cameo Coral,. Barely Banana or Creamy Caramel Cardstock or Ink Pads! So I went with my favourite colour, Sage Shadow and used my markers to ink up the stamps.
I am proud to say that this week, I started at 5:46pm and finished the card at 5:53pm!!  Woo-hoo!  I must tell you some of my secrets!  The white paper was scraps I had on my desk and then I cut some Sage to mat the white pieces.  Then I used my punch to add some interest to the piece I cut too big! LOL!  It was a quick card!  The white card front was an embossed piece I had not used for another card, it worked perfectly with my vision.  I added some Sage Shadow grosgrain and used my punches for the sentiment which is also from the Watercolour Trio Set.  I really hoped to be able to photograph step by step by process of making this card but I didn't get the chance again this week! I hope to be able to next week once life has settled down!

Stamps: Watercolour Trio
Paper: Sage Shadow, Whisper White
Ink: Stampin' Write Markers-Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow, Cameo Coral, Barely Banana
