Hello everyone from a nice and warm(ish) Gold Coast. The last few weeks have been INSANE for me. We all have times when life gets super busy but yet occasions still happen..birthdays & life events don't stop JUST because we are busy. It's at times like this that we need an emergency solution..a quick easy but effective card in a flash.

The Ritz Collection has the answer as the papers are all coordinating and the foiled embellishments in the back of the paper pads are already die cut for convenience.

Let's throw this card together..ten minutes and we will be done.

We start with a 5 1/4" square card base. On top of that layer a piece of black 5 1/8" square and then a piece of the patterned paper measuring 5" square.

A strip of the foiled paper at the back of the pad adds a nice focal point. 

I layered one of the elegant ladies from the back of the pad on a piece of black cardstock, popped on some 3d foam dots at the back and placed it on the card.

For the flower I took some glue and lightly added it to the tips of the petals, leaving it to dry until it went tacky. I cut a piece of gold hot foil and just touched it to the dry but tacky glue on the ends of the petals. This may be one of my favourite things to do this year..doesn't it look drop dead gorgeous.

Glue your flower to your card. How many minutes was that? Bet you it was ten minutes or maybe even less.

Thank you for playing along with me today. I hope you will join me in June for a few new projects.

Happy Crafting.
