Just for You - #2

Hey there! I snuck in a few minutes yesterday morning to whip up this card for my great-nephew's birthday. I've got to admit, in the card making world sometimes you're in the mood and sometimes you're not....and when you are....wonderous things can happen....or at least cute cards like this one come together in flash.
I remembered that I had some really cute chipboard animals from Sassafras so that was my starting point. I saw the elephant and the balloon bouquet and married the two together.  Next up was choosing the base colors and contrasting colors. After that I decided it needed some "grounding" so I added the rub-on stitching which went on a smoothly as butter from my Doodlebug sheet. Can you tell I love Doodlebug rub-ons? Once I found the teeny sticker sentiment I decided one last thing was missing....and added the small Martha Stewart butterfly.  Perfect!  And it was done in less than 15 minutes!  Fastest time ever!

I'll try to have more up this week as my school schedule has slowed down a's so hard for me to say no.
