Envy Becomes You!!!

For CFC#71 post scroll down or click HERE!!

Did you all see the current Tuesday Trigger pic over at Moxie Fab World???
Amazing Turquoise and Green combo with hint of it!
Here is my card inspired by "Envy Becomes You"..

 Let's see the inspiration picture here...

When I saw Embroidery on the pillow ....I knew letterpress technique will be the perfect thingy to do to add texture. I don't have a letterpress so went for  the Faux letterpress technique using Sizzix embossing folder and PTI ink. Up close it looks amazing!!
The bow on the shoe is just another gorgeous element...luckily I had the lovely May Arts Green Crushed ribbon !
For the golden lining ...I used some golden cardstock.. love the shimmer!!
Wish Only if I could take a better picture of my card ..this pic is doing the right justice!
The sentiment is from WPLUS9 stamps.

This card is for the following challenges..

10 Minute Craft Dash #3!!!

Hello Crafty Friends!!!

I've a super speedy card to share!!
LOVE 10 Minute Craft Dash challenges....Super Fun!!!
So here is my card with Challenge#3 colors..

9 Mins 10 Secs
I used Lawn Fawn  stamps for this card.... Chevron Backdrops , Flutter By and Lunar Lights(sentiment) sets!!
I got lots of queries and comments about these super fast less than 10 mins cards.
How do you do it so quick??
Can't believe you did it under 10 mins!!!
Oh! I can do any thing like that so quick!!!
and many more..
Here are few TIPS or  rather you can say how I do this...

2. Clearly think about your design before you start( its very important because once you start there not a single moment to waste)
3. Get all your supplies ready on the crafting surface. I prefer a larger table so there is enough space to work. I spread it like a Buffet....a craft buffet ;)
4. If you are planning to to lot of stamping(like I do) get quite a few acrylic blocks,mount stamps all at a time, use both side of the blocks, skip cleaning the stamps if possible, open all the required stamp pads together
( nothing will dry up within 4-5 minutes)
5. Try to save time where ever today for the Chevron Part, I inked half the border stamp with one color and other half with one more, as my piece of cardstock was only 2" wide , I saved time on cleaning stamps...these small things matter a lot;
6. Okay! About cleaning the stamps...I just keep two baby wipes folded on the table, when required I just tap my stamps on it and clean( just like you ink your stamps).
7. Always great to use adhesive back embellishments...its an Awesome time saver;
8. If you want to use foam adhesive...go for Foam Tape instead of pop dots as you can save a lot of time on removing the backing. I put two long strip of foam tape, thats it ...Super quick.

Hope this explains the process...
I'm not a if you've some great tips Please share with us!
Its pretty much DOable...just give it a shot!

This card is for the following challenges...
