Today’s cards uses the Birthday Bouquet Suite. I love the colors used in the Birthday Bouquet Pattern Paper - Blushing Bride, Mossy Meadow, and Mint Macaron! The paper is so pretty that I almost don't want to cover it up. I love the clean look of the white background on a card, but sometimes it looks too bare.

Can I tell you how much I love making super quick and easy cards? Today's Five Minute card was inspired by one I found on Stampin Up's website. I can't remember the name of the person who shared her cute sample but I loved how she made flowers by combining the scribbled circle from one set with flower petals from another set. In fact, these cards are so quick to make, I've now made about a dozen of these. Plus they are flat which is perfect for … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
