10-Minute-Scrap-Pile-Challenge

Hello, friends! Here's today's 10-Minute-Scrap-Pile-Challenge card... It's so satisfying to sit down having absolutely no idea what I'm going to make or where I'm going to go with a card, but commit to finishing it asap, and then actually do it. I've been hanging on to this scrap of stamped and embossed polka dots (Polka Dot Basics II) for a while... I just couldn't let it go because it was so bright and happy. I could use some happy today, so I thought this one was just the ticket. I'm loving the sentiment (from Blooming Button Bits) paired with the sunny dots... so perfect. I'm also diggin' all the different dot patterns mixed together with just a touch of the rainbow stripes.
As always, I'd totally love to see your 10 minute card. Just leave a comment with a link and I'll drop by to see it. Wishing you sunshine today!

ok, so it took more than 10 minutes to create and I didn't use scraps, but I was inspired by your blog colors. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
