12/4 Simple? no . . . BRILLIANT!

Would you like to make a FIVE minute card?? Can it really be that simple?? It was for me. I clicked onto Kristina Werner's Blog this morning looking for some inspiration and of course she provided it with her weekly color challenge. The colors to use this week were Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip.

My base is a half sheet of Whisper White folded in half. The top portion of the card is Celery Prints paper . . . now with slightly different designs called Celery Patterns in the latest SU catalog. I used Pumpkin Pie on the lower portion of the card. I love the flower I created with my Big Shot Machine and the Sizzlet set called Birds and Blooms. I've been noticing that flower shape on a lot of cards and I liked the look. It was only today as I was quickly getting my supplies together for this card that I realized I actually HAD this shape in my Birds and Blooms set! I've used the bird here and there but not the bloom!

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: A Little Bithday Cheer Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Taken With Teal, Celery Prints DSP Ink: Chocolate Chip Accessories: Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot Machine, Sizzlet Die Set Birds and Blooms, Fresh Favorites Button, Linen Thread, Glue Dot, Dimensionals

Today I have to take my daughter, Kari, for out patient surgery at Children's Hospital. She has a cyst on her collar bone that needs to be taken care of. It will be her 5th time to get stitches. She's kind of psyched about it - very proud of each and every event that led to having stiches! Most times have to do with falls onto lawn mowers, down steps, off bikes etc. I'm not quite as excited as she is.

Will keep your daughter in my prayers. Let us know how it goes.

Love those colors on your card. I am always amazed at the colors I don't think will go well together and then they look wonderful! Great card!
