Sometimes you just need to be able to "whip out a card!" This birthday card took about three minutes to make (and NO, I'm NOT including clean-up time!)
The card base is Chocolate Chip card stock and sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. I pierced holes in a two-inch tall piece of So Saffron card stock and stamped it with the Happy Birthday image from the Well Scripted stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog. (Downloadable from my sidebar!) I tied a piece of the scrumptious Pretty in Pink satin ribbon (also in the Occasions Mini) around it and adhered it to the card base.
The little "flower" was made by punching a piece of Sweet Pea designer paper using the new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch and then crumpling it up, distressing it and sponging Chocolate Chip ink on it. Layered on to it is a punched circle of Taken With Teal card stock and a So Saffron button from the Button Latte package of designer buttons. Easy and quick.
