Ready, Steady, Go! It's a Time Challenge!

Sue Davies is hosting this week's challenge over at Stampotique Designer's Challenges. Her challenge theme is a Time Challenge.  Here's what she has to say about her challenge:
"We can sometimes get caught up in making big production pieces. My challenge this week is to make something in 30 minutes or less (not including time taken to gather your supplies). I look forward to seeing what you create."
If you'd like the chance to win your choice of $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along with this challenge. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules so that you'll have the chance to win that great prize!!! Remember to check to see the deadline for all of this month's Stampotique Designers Challenges!

I'm not given to creating quickly, probably because I'm so distractable, so this challenge was a bit hard for me.

Here's my card using Fawn (Kira Nichols). This image is one Stampotique's new release stamps!

Fawn was stamped with Desert Sand Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. It was die-cut with one of the dies from the Rectangles Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). While the image was still in the die, I added the background with Copic markers. I popped it out of the die and added Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura) to Fawn's eyes, nose, and hooves.

The patterned paper is from the Mellow 6x6 pad (Basic Grey). Green patterned paper was die-cut with one of dies from the Scalloped Rectangles Nestabilities set and one of the dies from the Framed Tags Two die set (Spellbinders). Striped patterned paper was die-cut with the Double Scallop Border die (Die-namics). I used ancient white stickers (Making Memories) to spell out the sentiment and the card was assembled as shown.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card into the following challenges:
Critters and Creatures Challenges: Anything Goes
Scrappy Hands Challenges: Forest Animals
Through the Purple Haze Challenges: Make a Scene
