Filled the letters with crimped blue strips and decorated the corners  with white daisies and arranged the beads in a row. Daisies to show end of spring and start of summer.

Making a card in 10 mins!- sounds funny. But it is tricky and stressful . I have tried this time. Set alarm in your clock for ten minutes and then start your work. It's really crazy.

I  finished with a CAS card in 8 mins 46 secs. The flower took 4 mins and 3 sec. the tag is made out of chipboard and pasted the pink colour paper to it and pasted the flower pot to it. Ohh.. time is running... Just sticked it to a white card.the background effect effect was made with help of green & brown poster colours and brush.  Sentiment is hand written using brown marker.

Here is my card.
