MFT Lunch Time Challenge - card in 30 minutes or less!

Today was a self- challenge day ... I had this idea in my brain, but little time to execute it. 

So my challenge was to build a step card, pick papers, select an image to stamp then paper piece and color ... get a sentiment to stand, make a paper flower with leaves .... and get it done in less than 30 minutes (my lunch break).

This is the result of that challenge.

The papers are from DCWV Sweethearts pack. Image is from My Favorite Things stamp collection by Pure Innocence. The rolled paper die  and the framed oval (rear left) are both from MFT as well. I punched the edges in MS Eyelet Lace border punch, and added some Flower Soft for a cozy look in front of the sentiment.  Oh, the sentiment was cut from Cricut's Birthday Bash cartridge.

LOTS I would do differently if I had to make it over again. First -- different print for the paper pieced dress. The way those cupcakes fall, it just looks like dirt smudges on the girl's dress.  Second, coloring. Egads, that's bad ... third, did I say how rushing doesn't work when you need ink/glossy accents/glue to dry ... and fourth, take my time to ENJOY the work!  I AM SO NOT a 30-min pressure-cooker kind of crafter!!

What's something crafty you did today -- and what would you do to improve your work?
