Talk About A Quick Birthday Card!

Well, this card needs no explanation, does it?   It went together very quickly, was fun to make, and it's a fabulous way to use up some scraps.  Even the butterfly was hanging around - colored and trimmed - in my UFO* box.


I'm going to keep this idea in mind for more speedy birthday cards in the future.



* UFO is a term my friend Bonnie uses often, and it stands for UnFinished Objects.  

Stamps: Trendy Circle Sentiments - IBS; Touch of Nature - SU Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive, Very Vanilla - SU Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: circles, scalloped circle punches - SU; orange gems - Recollections; corner rounder punch - Fiskars

It's a good day when a UFO finds a home as pretty as this! I agree. A wonderful way to use up some snippets!

Love the UFO term! I have way too many of them at the moment! But seeing your exquisite card makes me want to try and use some of mine too! I love it!

OMG! I love it! Everything just pops up on the white, but I love how the butterfly pops up twice as more!

Yay for using scraps!!! I have a mission to constantly reduce my pile, but it rapidly keeps multiplying! Wish I had time for layouts! That would use up more!!! :-)
