A Simple Hi

Hey, everyone!
Wow, where did this week go? Am I right?
Seems like it just buzzed by.

I did get one super-easy card made, and I'm going to try to post it super-quick, as I should be dressing for work at this very moment.
So, here it is:

Like I said, super-simple.
I started with some white Bazzill cardstock, folded to a regular-sized card, and after everything was adhered, I decided to trim it into a square. I don't advise that you do this -- mine came out with a slightly smaller border up top as a result. Oh well, live and learn.

Looking through my stash, I spotted this paper from DCWV that had a whole bunch of glittery squares depicting flowers and birds. I chose four, punched them out with my scalloped square punch, and adhered them to the front of the card.

Then I cut out the little bird and added him with dimensionals.
I put a felt flower ($1 bin at Target) in the center, and a button from my stash with a bit of white embroidery floss through the center, tied into a bow. Stuck on some Making Memories glitter alphas to spell out my sentiment. To finish, I rounded all four corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Rounder.

After I got all the pictures done, I decided to add a tiny hot pink butterfly to the top left square. I didn't want to take the photos all over again, so you'll have to just imagine it's there. ;o)

And that's it for me! Hope to have more posts next week.
Have a great weekend!
