Hello friends ...
Today I have a quick card to share that was literally put together in about 5 minutes time from scraps and off cuts.  Hope you like it!  

This polka dot paper is the flip side of an old Graphic45 12x12 sheet.  I had this scrap left over and had totally forgotten about having it in my scrap box.  I die cut the small polka dot 'happy' the other day for a project but then didn't like how it looked so set it aside.
My word happy is from the Pink & Main 'happy' die set.
Pink & Main - Dies - Happy

  When I sat it on the larger polka dot background, It just kind of disappeared so I decided to fussy cut a red mat to help make it stand out.  
Inside View
 As you can see I used the additional left over panels of polka dot and red for the inside.  This BIRTHDAY die cut was also laying on the table ... I had actually cut it apart BIRTH    DAY but put it back together for the inside of my card.  I used Nuvo White Crystal Drops to do the outlining.

What a cute idea to use the large and small polka dots together! Love polka dots. They're one of my weaknesses. Crisp color contrast, and cute the way you carried it over inside, too!

wow, 5 minutes that's pretty great. I love how you used a smaller polka dot for the happy, and the red is a great way to pop both of the sentiments and love the outlining with the drops, great touch!!
