I'm here today with my second attempt at Craft Dash's challenge #15 - the first one didn't make the time cut. ;)

I was pretty excited about this color combo - something about that navy in there just spices things up a bit, don't ya think?

And then there's this cool Tuesday Trigger photo for additional color inspiration...

...and now the card that took me 9 minutes and 42 seconds to make...

For some reason, the flower looks peachy in the photograph, which is odd, because I haven't noticed my camera having problems picking up certain colors before. It's actually a nice shabby pink, in real life - the video (below) seems to pick up on this better.

And guess what? I actually edited and uploaded the video 'documenting' this process  - it makes me so happy, because I haven't been able to edit my videos on Picasa since getting my current camera a year and a half ago. I tried Googling my problems, but it was just such a mess, I gave up. So I just recently tried Windows Movie Maker and that seems to be the trick! Plus, for some reason, the edited video uploads way faster on YouTube than the unedited version - weird, right? Anyway, here it is, with minimal editing since I didn't want to spend a lot of time on something that might not work;

Thanks for stopping in today, and God bless!
