a challenge card...finally!

I feel like I have been working on orders so much lately (which I have) that I haven't been able to participate in any challenges!! So I decided to just clear my stamp table of work for a minute and make a card for today's color challenge at Splitcoast. The challenge was Pretty Certainly Chocolate. I used my Spring Solitude stamp set...this is the first time it has seen ink! I cut out the bird and the flower and glued them on the image. I added a few brads, some ribbon, inked up the edges of the paper, used a little dsp (designer series paper) and that's it! Pretty quick card! Gotta run...with Shawners out of town I am the go to person and the kids are calling! At least I stole 10 minutes to make a card!! :)
Have a great rest of your day!! Thanks for coming by!

Your card is so pretty! Ten minutes -- really? Love your ribbon. I'm still struggling with tying the wider ones. Your simple cards always look so complete, like nothing is lacking. You always wow me!
