I actually did a 'quickie'!

WEll, quick for me! I made this card in about an hour! Most of the time took thinking it out, lol! What's funny though, it was actually this weeks sketch challenge at SCS, so shouldnt have been THAT much thinking! haha! What can I say, I'm a slow card making, even if its sketched out for me, lol. I find myself changing which side to put what on, changing WHAT I'm putting on it...blah blah...till its something I like. Really not much stamping on this card, poking holes and adding brads and glue, lol.

My favorite part of this card, besides my new 'Flirty Flowers' stamp set from Unity Stamp Company, is that cool acetate overlay that I found at Target on clearance. Its by Paper Crush and is called photo overlays. There were 12 in the pack, the total size of each overlay is about 4" x 6" so its a bit short if making the standard 4.25" x 5.5" but I made do, lol. Lots of neat designs, with dp with it really, I just didnt use it here. Super easy card! But next time I use the flirty flowers set, want to color them to show off the cute flowers in the set!

Thanks for taking the time to look! Sorry this so late today, I actually had it set up to post and didnt check to see if it did till late today, forgot to change the PM AM thingy, lol.
Have a wonderful safe holiday weekend if you are in the US! If not, still do! LOL!

Very nice Cat! The overlay is gorgeous. I like the combination a lot.
Yesterday I worked on a card with the same papers, but can't show. since it is for a swap and people might be watching. Great minds think alike huh.

WOW! Stunning. I like the way you used the buttons as the flowers. Very pretty!

It is gorgeous, Cat. It doesn't look like a quick card. More like an all day one. I am a slow card maker, too. Usually 2 hours is a quickie for me.

This is gorgeous Cat! I love the little flowers and how each one is a bit different. The crushed velvet flowers look great with the pink color scheme. Is there anything that Target doesn't carry. It is my most favorite store!!
Thanks for sharing!!
