Papertrey Dolls & Make it Monday Challenges

I don't have a lot of time this week. Instead of "I only have ten minutes," I really only have 5 minutes! It took me all week to make the card below. And, it just so happens to qualify for 2 challenges this week. Edit: I may have over-impressed some of you. I meant that I made the card in three or four 5 minute segments. The cupcake in 5 minutes, the matting in 5 minutes, etc. I wish I could knock out a card in 5 minutes! lol

To qualify for the Make it Monday Challenge, the project had to use the distress technique. Read more about it here along with the video. So, I distressed the edges of the pink focal point. It is hard to tell in the wide shot, so for proof, here is a close up.

I am also playing along with the fabulous Papertrey Dolls group with their "P-T-I" challenge. The idea is to make a project that includes something that starts with "P", "T", and "I". Fun, huh?

So, for "P", I went with Paper Piecing and Polka dots.
"T" is chocolate baker's Twine, Tiny Treats: Valentines (sentiment) and Tea die duo
"I" is for Impression of mat stack 4.

And, here is a close up of the Paper Pieced cupcake:

Okay, my 5 minutes are up! Thanks for stopping by!

What a sweet card Laura. I really like the buttons you stamped. The colors are great too. So glad you joined us Dolls.


Another kindred spirit. I love knowing that I'm not the only one who can take a week to finish a card. The polka dot paper reminds me of scrumptious sprinkles. I also love the banner and twine at the bottom. Very cute!

A~D~O~R~A~B~L~E!!! Love your cuppie with those polka dots! The twine is a great touch too! I got a chuckle out of your "edit" statement! I think that describes me when creating too! :) Thanks so much for celebrating with the Dolls!
