A Friend in the Round

The following card is for the challenge class posted above.  I found it a bit troublesome using so many colors, but I purposely made myself complete the card without spending too much time rifling through my papers.  Many things I experience with cardmaking: the joy of creating, the awe of finding a color combination that suits a particular stamp, the ability to convey a feeling through a card, etc, but I rarely experience speed.  Any card made in less than one hour always record breaking for me. Will this change over  time?  Or should I resign myself to being so SLOW?  Regardless, this was a lot of fun and I see a lot of great cards being made with colors that I would have never put together!

C/S: PTI White, Raspberry Fizz, Unknown Purple
Stamps: Studio G, Unity Grainy Background
Ink: Color Box Frost White, Berrylicious, SU Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue
Other; Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles, Scalloped Circles
