A quick card and an announcement!!

Hey everyone!

I'm here with a card and an announcement...

Ok...So, here is my card for 'pretty pink posh: 10 minute craft dash' challenge 5! Here is the challenge graphic...

And here is my card! I loved making it and I'm totally in love with the challenge colours...

I took 9 min 57 sec to make this one!! Never made such a quick card before... But I did learn that for quick cards it's better to not use two way foam tape for adhesive...I lost a lost of time there trying to peel off the backing! :( My faux stitching isn't neat too... and die cut the butterflies on the wrong side! so many mistakes...Ribbons aren't proper too!

And now for the announcement---

Many would have known already...but those who don't, well....It's my wedding! Yay!!!! :) I'm getting married on 27th of this month... Since it's just a week away, I decided ( parents actually :)) to take a break from crafting... I might be away for a while and I'll really miss this place.... Will surely be checking out your cards but won't make any...

As promised, will make a post about the winners of challenges on Oct 24th...

Do leave me your wishes since I'm going to start something really new and important in my life

Take care and keep crafting! :) :) :)
