Two PTI Anniversary Challenge Cards

I pretty much squealed with delight when I saw PTI's Timer Challenge today....7 minutes to gather 7 supplies/17 minutes to make a card...I can do that!  I think I've made it pretty clear that I loved the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge, and I miss it a bunch.  Hence my excitement.  I didn't get to play along with PTI's freebies yesterday...I didn't make any cards at all yesterday.  Tis life.  But I have to thank Heather because her awesome freebie made quick work of this card.  It took me about 2 minutes to gather supplies, and I finished the card in 7 minutes 13 seconds.  It took me the first 3 1/2 minutes to make the card and rest of the time to fuss with the sequins.  Ha!  I only used 4/7 supplies I grabbed (paper, impression plate, printable, sequins)....hope that is okay.  My favorite parts on this card are the subtle textures.  I'm also happily entering this into the Simon Says...Have a Heart Challenge.
My second card is for PTI's color/sketch combo challenge. It started as a timer challenge card, but a few phone calls later I'd totally lost track of my time.  I'm not sure why I struggle with masculine cards, but alas I do.  I didn't have much time to fuss with it, though.  I just had to let it go and finish it up because my husband (one of the phone calls) was on his way home with some ice cream that was going to be delivered with this card.  Off to prepare the next post. :)  ETA: Oops..forgot to add the color scheme and sketch I used.

  1. Two gorgeous that you have a beautiful feminine card and a masculine card. The texture on the first is perfect. I love the linen impression plate and the stripes on the second are awesome. I love fast crafting too...right up my alley!

  2. These are both so cool. Love that love card layout. And your confetti bags - what a super idea!

  3. Wow! Great job with the time challenge!
    Love your perfect diagonal stripes...I always mess them up!

  4. These are both beautiful . I cant remember if I already left a comment or not…
    Love the pink stripes on the first card. Love the twine and button card. I know what being rushed is like …seems like I am alway in a hurry too.

  5. I think you did an amazing job on your "masculine" card - i love it- the color choice is perfect with the striped sketch and the sentiment and button - perfect!

  6. You are rocking the PTI challenges, Lindsey! Love how you used the freebie on the first card and the angled design, and the colors and sketch of the second is masculine, indeed!

  7. Gorgeous card Lindsey, the colours are so striking.
