Quick and Easy card...

Hi and Happy Saturday! Sorry I'm late (or later than normal) with my post. I kinda forgot I hadn't already scheduled it. hehehe

I am one who likes to create a card specifically for the person I'm giving it to. I don't usually make up birthday cards ahead of time and this sometimes leaves me in a bind. The card I'm going to share with you today is one that is fun yet quick and easy. So, next time you find yourself in my usual spot, you can whip the card out and be ready to go in no time! Take a peek...

I created a square cardbase using plain white cardstock then layered a strip of Scenic Route patterned paper on the top and a piece of pink cardstock that was embossed with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder on the bottom. I covered the seam with a strip of ribbon then added some puffy and metal embellishments from Making Memories. Topped it off with a bow and that was it! The embellishments could easily be switched out with tags and stickers leftover from packs you've already used. Versatility. That's what I like.

Well, thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back on Monday for the Bella Studio Digi Challenge with my card inspired from last week's color scheme. I hope you'll stop by!

Love the way this came out, Katie. It is a great design for quick and easy, but it sure doesn't look that way. Have a great time next week and see you soon!
