Diane with you today on Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
Have you ever been in a "time crunch" for a card?
That is what my card is about today.
Making a card in a mere 5 kidding, it can be done!
I designed my card around the paper from "Lady Rose"  6 1/2" paper pad.
All the paper elements used were from the "Lady Rose" pad.
I cut my card stock base to measure 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", adding a piece of the
gorgeous background paper on top from the "Lady Rose" paper pad.
Next I cut the Cherry Lynn Designs "Italian Flourish Doily Die" 
After adhering it down, I "popped" up the label with "Joy Foam Pads Small"
This paper pad has 4 die cut pages in the back and 2 of embossed pages
which is where I got my label and the bird cage and butterflies from.
I fussy cut the two butterflies and birdcage and popped them up.
On the  bird cage I added the cutest little resin "Whimsy Heart"
Added a scrap of a bow, and three "white pearls" in the corner for "balance"
and the card was completed!
The "Lady Rose" paper pad is full of paper to make many more 5 minute cards
similar to this one.  Thanks for visiting with me today....see  you again soon!!

What a beautiful card.

I am working on my creative space so I can take 5 minutes to make a card. But, I don't think I could make that card in 5 minutes.

Wow, it doesn't look like a 5 minute card, it's so pretty. Bet I'd spend 5 minutes just making the bow, tee hee!
