Stamp-A-Holics #121 Inspiration Challenge, Stampin' Royalty, the Colour Throwdown and MY FIRST EVER BLOG CANDY!!!

Hello stampers!  Thank you for dropping by my blog!  For our Stamp-A-Holics Challenge, you are welcome to create either a Card, Scrapbook Page or a 3D Item.  There is only one catch!  A Card must be completed in 10 minutes, A Scrapbook Page must be completed in 20 minutes and A 3D Item must be completed in 30 minutes!
Today the Stamp-A-Holic Design Team have worked with this Inspiration Photo.  When I saw the photo, my eye was immediately drawn to the vibrant Turquoise, Pinks and Greens!  I saw the Colour Throwdown this week and remembered their colours Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss and Tempting Turquoise! Perfect!

I also managed to take pictures of my project throughout and I must tell you, I worked at a frantic pace!   I decided to make a 3D Project...over at the Stamping Royalty they are asking for "Anything but a Card".  SO I went with that challenge for my creation as well!  I have the timer all ready to go and I have named him Mr. Snappy...Okay...I have all my supplies ready....GO!
I had printed off the instructions to the Notecard Box from Splitcoast Stampers.  I quickly cut all the paper sizes I needed to make the card.  You can find the instructions HERE.  I scored all the paper and made the cuts as directed in the instructions.  I put my box together.  You will see the top soon!
I decided to use the Daisies #2 Die and the Big Shot to embellish the top of the box.  I was supposed to use Rose Red but I was all out of my Rose Red Cardstock!  Shock!  Horror!  So I subbed in Melon Mambo!  SO much for the best laid plans!
I added a Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Button and used some of the Hemp Twine to add some sweetness!  Can you see Mr. Snappy there?  You may have to click on the photo to check out my time at this point! I am 15 minutes in!!!  I used the "For You" sentiment from the "All Holidays" stamp set and inked it up with Tempting Turquoise!  I wanted to be sure to use all the colours from the Colour Throwdown!
Then I set about making four little 3x3 notecards to match!  I cut each Whisper White Card to be 3x6" and scored the card at 3".  Then I cut out the smallest daisy from the die and added the smallest Kiwi Brads to them.  They are so little and sweet!
Here is Mr. Snappy!  I did it!!  I did work at a frantic pace and made sure I had all my supplies in front of me!
And here is the finished Project!

Now for my BLOG CANDY!   This is open to all crafty bloggers!  I would like to offer the chance to win the "Bouquet Bunch" Clear Mount Set on page 21 in the new Summer Mini.  I will pay the taxes and shipping on the "Bouquet Bunch" set.   If the winner already has this set, they will be able to choose another item for the same amount of $14.95.
