10-Minute Craft Dash--Take Two

I had to try again--I KNEW I could produce a card in less than 29 minutes...
Lessons learned from Take One:  minimize hand-cutting, or lining anything up, no fancy two-tone stamping, the flatter the better.

In case you don't have a clue what I'm talking about, see this POST.  I had a less-than-successful go at the 10-Minute Craft Dash:

This time I used two Paper Smooches sets:  We Connect and Leafy Greens, as well as two new PS dies: Ampersands and Love Word.
The card is essentially one-layer, except I popped up the Ampersand. I love that dye inks are kind of see-through--there are some neat effects where the colours over-lapped. I tried for some texture on the solid leaf-shapes, too, by swiping the stamps across the ink pad.
And this one came in at:

Back to the 10-Minute Craft Dash to link this one up.
