AYSI247 Speedy Blossoms

Happy Good Friday, everyone!  It's time for a new As You See It challenge, and it's the exhilarating SPEED STAMPING!  Woohoo!  We'd like to see your stamped creations be completed in ten minutes or less!  And here's your inspiration: 
Well, I'll tell you....despite having all my supplies lined up and ready, I just barely squeaked this one in at 9 minutes and 45 seconds!  My initial design didn't quite work so I was scrambling to correct it.  In the end, this is what I came up with:

I used the sketch from Try Stampin On Tuesday:

and I chose one of my favorite go-to (but soon retiring) floral stamps, Bloom and Grow!  I stamped the largest floral spray in Rococo Rose and diecut it with the matching die.  Before adhering it to my white mat, I used a Blender Brush to smooth on some Balmy Blue ink and added some speckles:

I popped it up with dimensionals, added a white ribbon for the banner and stamped the thank you sentiment at the bottom.  It all went on a Balmy Blue card base.  I always need thank you cards, so this will go in my stash!

You really need to be prepared for this challenge---so gather up your supplies, plan your design and GO!  See what you can create in ten minutes or less, then share it with us at the As You See It blog!  Be sure to tell us how long it to you to create your masterpiece, too!  Can't wait to see it!  Thanks for popping in today!

We'll be headed to my other nephew's for Easter on Sunday and we will be seeing this little guy with his new pet:

I am sure she has been laying some Easter eggs too!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

So pretty, LeAnne! Your colors are perfect and the way you added the ribbon (banners) is most clever. Thank you for playing along with us at TSOT #499. -- Melanie R. (I may just give your challenge a try - sounds like fun!)
