Just a Quickie

As I told you last night,I haven't had any time for card making this week but tonight was my evening for Scrapbooking class at Scrapbook Sisters and it was one of my Scrapping friend's birthday this week so a super quick card was needed.

Ok, I know that it's very similar to an earlier post but this time it's in blue. It really was super quick too,I'd stamped and coloured several strips of these flowers last week,they are just so lovely to colour using the copics and if you're stamping one strip,you just might as well stamp a few that way it cuts down on time working out the spaces between each bloom. The greeting is Jane's Script by Woodware and the flowers are also part of the same stamp set which consists mainly of greetings with a few of these lovely simple flowers.I just added a strip of toning paper,a dob of stickles to the centre of the flowers and a few flat backed gems. Took me almost as long to write the card and find an envelope as it did to put the elements together,simple.
Hope to get my coursework finished by the weekend so I'll be back to my happy place,making cards.

Am using this card for the following challenges:-

A Pocket Full Of Posies 1,One for the girls,

Corrosive Challenge 70,Flowers,

Thanks for stopping by,

This is very sweet. Reminds me of a quote (DaVinci I believe) "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."

Love the keep on stamping down the row mentality. It is nice to just grab something you previously colored and POOF - you have a card.
