The 15-minute card challenge was yesterday (my In Full Bloom Mini Card), but that's all the time I had before work today, so this was definitely a quickie.
I have to say that I wasn't enthused about the colors when I first read them, but I LOVE them together now that I've made this card. The flower centers are actually thumbtacks that I found in the office supply section at Target. I just used the wire snips from the SU tool kit and snipped off the points as close as I could, then stuck them on with pop-up glue dots. I think they added just the right bling - and they were green galore! The flower on the top is popped up with glue dots too.
