Thanks A Million

Hi all!  You know those times when you need just a quick little card?  Like one of the '15 minutes or less variety'?  Yeah, I'm not so good at those, lol :)  But I'm trying so when I found myself in need of one it was kind of a personal challenge to see how I could do.  I decided that it would probably help if I made a smaller card- less space equals less time figuring out what the layout will be and how I can incorporate the different papers and embellishments that I love so much.  It seemed to work too- I truly only spent about 15 minutes putting this one together- once I'd done the coloring of course- and I'm pretty happy with the results.  I'm sure I'll be back to my normal 6x6 cards with lots of bling and flowers in no time but it's definitely good to step outside your comfort zone every now and then :)  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek - I hope that you like it as well!
