Wednesday Kite Tails and a Sketch

Happy Wednesday!

I was up last week on the Kite Tails Designs blog with a quick and easy card sketch.  I really like the clean and simple looks to cards.  One of the reasons why I like them so is that they are usually super easy to create and I can use a bunch of my scraps!  I really do not have a lot of scraps because I always use them on my cards.  

My sketch
For this cards I used the Blue Sky Day.  I loved that this collection had the same pattern paper in different colors.  I picked 3 colors and cut a square.  I then cut out of the pattern pieces a circle to add a bit of embellishment.  I then added a touch of bling to the center of the circle.  You always need bling- right??  Finally I added a quick sentiment from my Lawn Fawn stamp set.  I love it when a card can come together in under 15 minutes!
supplies

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

A 15 minute card is a blessing in my book. LOL! I love the blocks of paper with the rhinestone-topped circle to finish it all off!
