10 minute Filigree

Hello!

Continuing my love affair with Filigree, I made a card for 10 Minute Craft Dash #19. I added that little love heart from one of the other sentiments. I just stuck some washi over the bit I didn't want on the stamp, inked up, removed the washi, and stamped it where I wanted it. :-)
I used Mama Elephant Filigree stamps. Colours are SU! Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party. Twine is Caribbean by The Twinery. 

I think this may be my fastest card EVER. How is it possible to make such a pretty card in 4 1/2 minutes? Only a couple of years ago, this card would have taken me at least an hour. I've come a little way over time. :-)
I am feeling like a bit of a hero, for the entire time I was trying to conceive and stamp this card, I had a five year old velcroed to my elbow (the one I was working with).  It's amazing I lined ANY stamps up, let alone making a smudgeless card, LOL!

The colours for the 10 minute craft dash are
Thanks for coming to visit me!  I have a busy few days ahead, so it may be a little while before I return with another card... but then, you never know when I might sneak to my craft table.

So pretty! How you managed to come up with such a design, execute it, and in under 5 minutes with a five year old is beyond me! Love that lace!

This is a great card, better that you finished early and with a child Velcroed to your elbow. Gorgeous!

I am so impressed- a beauty within 5 minutes? Now that isn't a time I see very often in my challenge! :) Love that filigree, the little rhinestone additions and that adorable heart. Not to mention you did this with a kiddo on your arm. Bravo!

I'm so thrilled you joined along in the 10 Minute Craft Dash. Hope to see you for the next challenge!

This is such a fantastic and fun card, Michelle! You definitely should win a big prize for a 10-, wait, excuse me, a FIVE-minute card made with a five-year-old helper! Me, in awe!!

Oh, this is beautiful and to get these types of results in less than 10 minutes is amazing. Just too sweet.
