Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #32~Q is for Quick (Make a 10MInute Card)

Hi All!

Welcome to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #32~Q is for Quick (Make a Card in 10 Minutes.  That's it....just make a 10 minute card!

Although this card has a number of steps I was able to put it together quickly due to a number of things.  #1 ~ I've used this design before,  #2 ~ I keep 4" x 5 1/4" pieces of cardstock for backgrounds and pre-folded bases, and #3~I cleaned off my card-making area....a miracle!  The trouble is it won't stay that way.

I stamped the light house image first in Buttercream ink.  Since this is a fast-drying True Color Fusion Ink, I only needed to set it aside for a few minutes while I completed the other parts.  I stamped the background on the pre-cut cardstock, then stamped Happy Birthday.  I cut the ribbon to be able to fit around the background panel.  I then used the circle and pierced circle die cut.  All I had to do was attach all the pieces. 

Anyone who knows me, knows I take a long, long time to come up with a card design.  I also have a difficult time following sketches.  This just happened to be a design I have used before and like, so I was able to make a quick card.
