Working on those scrappy goals

Remember those scrappy goals I shared with you earlier? Well, another one on that list is get some quick and easy card finished up for my card stash bins.

Just nice and easy kids birthday cards for Little Miss C and Little Mr P to give their friends and classmates when they go to their parties. That is a lot of children's birthday cards, so I am going to keep these ones very simple. I am even doing 4 or 5 of some of them. Gotta build up that finished card bin.

Here is my first kids birthday card for 2013.
Sorry about my shadow falling on the bottom half of the picture! If you click on the photo to enlarge it, it is somehow not quite so bad.. I really need to set up my whiteboard "box" and buy a gooseneck lamp! I am just terrible at taking pictures!.

Card Base and envelope - from my stash
Cardstock - snippets from my stash
Dies - Spellbinders , petite circle, lacey circle, scalloped circle
Stamp - Stampin Up (not sure of the name of the set, it is from 2007)
Brads - from my stash (a BoBunny set,  I think)
Stickles - Diamond

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - Must use snippets. This whole card is snippets:)
2. MFP Speedy TV Simple Salutations - Anything goes
3. Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

This fishy swims in wonderfully. Like the inking on the banner edge. Thank you for entering MFP Simple Salutations Anything Goes challenge.
