Taking forever.....

When I'm making a card for a challenge such as this week's Play Date Cafe' Challenge, I am amazed at how long I work on it!  I know that not having a layout in mind when I start is probably the biggest problem, but it's how I work.   And I find myself at midnight, finally completing the post with my challenge card.
(Linking up with 52 Card Pickup, too.)


Patterned paper from  Basic Grey's "Wassail" collection; textured paper from Club Scrap.

I'm a slowpoke too - I remember submitting cards for Take 10 that took quite a bit more than 10 minutes, lol!

Love your card. The flower is gorgeous and the colors are so soft and pretty.

I have to laugh everytime I read that ad....10 Minute cards...where did this idea come from anyway???!!! I am sorry but there just isn´t such a thing at my house. Trust me ,,,if I ever find a way to produce a card in less than two hours I will email you ASAP....so I can relate totally to what you are saying...this is a gorgeous card though so I think it was worth working till 12 midnite ,,,don´t you:) have a good weekend!!

What a great insight into your struggles. Needless to say, the struggle is missed due to the fact this is a wonderful card. I never would have "see" the BG Christmas paper as something to use for this card. Yet..you pulled if off beautifully Thanks for the ideas.
