AAA Cards: CAS Game #137

I saw the current challenge at AAA Cards and just knew I had to participate.

I was intrigued by the "time limit" challenge. I had not previously ever timed myself. I sadly was in need of a sympathy card for a former co-worker. 

Here's my card

Here's a close-up of the dry embossing

I started with Couture Creations' Exotic embossing folder and dry embossed a white A2 panel. I trimmed the panel to 4" x 3.75". I added some black grosgrain ribbon and a "fake" bow to the bottom of the panel. By "fake" bow, I mean that I cut a 2.5" piece of ribbon and angled both ends of the piece. I looped around the small piece with a longer piece of ribbon to make it look like a bow. I adhered the embossed panel and ribbon to an A2 card base. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP's Flower Friend stamp set.

I timed my efforts -12.5 minutes. Not bad, eh?
