As You See It Challenge # 160

So this is the my first entry in the As You See It Challenge!
I had just found this blog with their last challenge the day
before it closed. I missed out because I was called into work!

But I'm ready now! I am new to blogging ( a few months ;) and
 have only been making cards and paper crafts since early 2014,
 so all of these challenges are new to me and I love them!

This challenge is a blast because we are not following
a sketch, we are challenging ourselves with time. Above
is the color theme, oranges and neutrals, but the time
to complete the card is in 10 minutes! How fun!

I actually made 3 cards! Timed myself each time and
I was able to finish them under the 10 minute guideline.
Knowing I was being timed kind of made me feel nervous! But I did it.

Here are all the cards I did. I couldn't make up my mind
so I chose the simplest of the 3.

My times for the cards above were:
8.30, 6.02 & 9.20

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving

Have a great rest of the weekend &
Be Blessed!


  1. Melissa, I'm so glad that you've found us and played along. A speed challenge was my first ever play with As You See It too. It's funny how the clock does add pressure but it's so surprising what you can achieve. I love all three cards and any of them would be great entries. That big dahlia makes such a statement in orange and looks fabulous against the wood grain paper. Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It.

  2. So happy you found our blog! Your cards are beautiful! Perfectly done, stamped on the DSP and so pretty! Anyone would be very happy to receive one of these! So glad you played with our AYSI challenge this week

  3. You have done a great job, Melissa! One would never guess that you are new to challenges and were stamping under time pressure! All of your cards look professional and well designed! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge! Hope to see you again!
