10 Minute Craft Dash - AKA Stress Moments!

 Hi there! I have a seriously quick card to share with you today:
Now, I frequently make cards quickly, so when I saw this 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge, I thought, "How hard can it be?" It helped to be able to gather my supplies first, and I had a plan, so I thought it would be no problem. Why then does the timer give such an adrenalin rush? Yikes!
I finished the last bit of my card, and here is where I stopped the timer:
So...the details! I started off with some American Crafts 6x6 papers (no idea which lines they are from!) and punched a lace border with a Martha Stewart Edge Punch, layered and stuck them together, then trimmed and matted in white.
I cut the tag with one of the new Paper Smooches Dies, then stamped the sentiment from a Paper Smooches Set called Giddy Bugs in different PTI ink colors to coordinate. The little smiley face in each of the "e's" came from a set called Hullabaloo. 
Mounted the lace border panel on my card base, added some jute twine to the top of the tag, then attached the tag with foam adhesive to my card base.
If you haven't a had a chance to play along - this is a totally fun challenge! I have had fun checking out all the entries! Have a great day!!!
