Time Out #90 - Theme Challenge

Hi friends!  The new challenge over on the Time Out blog is the Theme with a twist challenge.  The theme is Autumn and the twist is to make your card in 10 minutes or less.  THAT'S a challenge!
Now I didn't time how long it took me to do this card, but it was under 10 minutes to create it.  Thinking about what I was going to make and getting the supplies together was another thing!  I started by die cutting the white panel with the wonky stitches die.  Then I started stamping the leaves.  I stamped the green one in the middle first, then stamped the others.   I wanted the die cut words to match the inks, so I used the direct to paper technique then die cut the words.  I wanted to stack the words, but to do that would have taken more time, so I just have one layer.  I had to add some Nuvo drops too!  This panel is mounted on a green base.
You can see more from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Elaine, on the Time Out blog.

You did a great job of the speed stamping and got so much in within 10 mins, surer impressed. I love the added nuvo drops, perfect placement, you are so good at this. So lovely to see the Austin colours x

All these graphic line art leaves are just delicious, Lisa ... there's a fabulous autumnal freshness to them which is lovely! Great decision on the nuvo drops ... they look perfect! Hugs, Anita :)

Love the colors (especially the green base) and the graphic design. The Nuvo drops are a great addition. Sometimes I shy away from them because I can't place them and move them until I am happy. Yours look fantastic. Great autumn themed card.

I'm in awe of your keeping the leaves evenly spaced and framing them with the wonky stitch die! Great card design. Thank you for the comment on my card.
