A Super Quick & Easy Card

Hi friends, and Happy Friday!

Sharing today a super quick and easy card that I put together for Brent's birthday recently.  Brent is pretty much a minimalist, clean lines and white on white is his kind of thing.

I had some new goodies on my desk from October Afternoon's Daily Flash collection - some Flash Chip - Frame Up chipboard, and a pack of Tin Pins.  

So with Brent's minimalist style in mind, I started with a white card base, layered patterned paper and some more white cardstock, a chipboard frame and border and a smattering of ink.  Topped off with the Awesome tin pin and this card was done and dusted in a matter of minutes.

I love that the tin pins fit so well inside all of the frames in this chipboard pack, and while I have them on my desk I'll be putting together a few more cards for my stash.

As I didn't have any papers from the Daily Flash collection, I pulled one of the patterned papers from the Travel Girl line (one of my favourite collections ever), and it matched perfectly.

Did you notice the ink I accidentally splodged on the frame?  I have to confess I may have cursed a little at that, but yes, I'll remember to cover my elements a bit better next time I'm throwing ink around ha!

It's Autumn here, my absolute favourite season, and the weather is delightful with blue skies and lots of sunshine.    We're planning a day out in the hinterland, walking trails and maybe even picnicking tomorrow and I'm so looking forward to it. 

Hoping you have a little something planned to enjoy your weekend ahead!
