Quick Card and Embellish Challenge

Howdy Friends!!  Today is a beauty of a day outside and I plan on enjoying some of it!!  First, though I wanted to share a quick card I made last night.  I received a package in the mail from a message board friend filled with all kinds of eye candy!  One particular piece of paper sang out to me - make me into a card, pronto!!  So of course I had to listen and create!  This card came together very quickly using items that came from my mail package and a couple of pieces from my stash. 

Now, here is the interesting thing!  I had been planning on submitting to the color challenge for Embellish Magazine and realized that I had used all of the colors totally by accident (except for the green, but that was an easy fix!).  I plan on making some 'sweets' to give as a gift this Christmas to one of the teachers at my daughter's school, and thought this card would fit perfectly with it.  So, this card is my submission for that challenge - nothing like multi-tasking is there? :O)

I hope you enjoy this super 'sweet' card!

All scraps from my scrappy mail package/personal stash
