A 10 minute card that almost did me in

Second post scroll down for the first.

Well I am back with my second card like I promised.

I wanted to do the 10 minute challenge over at the I Dream of Stamping blog. I planned my card out in my head and set the timer and began. I was rolling along and went to emboss my white layer. That is where the trouble began. I could not get the sandwich correct in my Big Shot (I got it for Christmas as a present so I am just learning how to use it). So I thought I will switch to my Cuttlebug as I know that sandwich. Well wouldn't you know it, that sandwich didn't want to work for me either. I went back and forth between my 2 machines until I finally got a good impression. Needless to say I went way past the 10 minutes. If you take away the machine error (it was hard to crank through and I was afraid I would break my machines so I wouldn't force it), the card did take 10 minutes to make so I am going to say it works.

This is a simple card that should not need any explanation so I will post it and if you have any questions, please ask! Here is my creation!
