I created this card on Friday for the Splitcoaststampers Limited Supply Challenge. The challenge was to create a card in 30 minutes or less. This one took 20 minutes. One of the ways I create super fast cards is by using the same basic layout with designer paper. Then I add a solid image or a line image like this one but I keep the coloring to a minimum. I add embellishments to dress it up. One other fast trick is the paper piercing is done with the sewing machine. Hope you like it!

This is super cute! I love the fact that it was a quick card. And I really love the idea of piercing with the sewing machine!
