Quick & Cheery

I must have been in the mood for really quick cards yesterday; I made three that only took about 10 to 15 minutes each.  So here's today's super-fast card:

Can't beat silver glimmer paper for the immediate wow factor.  I was going to stamp Positively Chevron in white on the Lucky Limeade card base, but then I remembered this pattern from last year's Summer Smooches DSP, and why make it harder than it has to be?  So much faster this way. 

For my color inspiration, I used the challenge palette from Color Throwdown:

And paired it with this no-muss, no-fuss fun Retro Sketch:

Et voila!  Done.  Better yet, I'm kind of in love with this card, which is a lovely and unexpected bonus for something that took almost no time to put together.  :)

Have a fabulous day, friends!  Thanks for checking out Snapdragon Stamps today.

Oh yes, I DO really like that -- LOVE the color combo. Funny, some of these backgrounds remind me of the dress that Mrs. Baxley wore -- my 3rd grade teacher. It made my eyes go wonky every time, but I could NOT STOP LOOKING AT IT. Ah, memories! Love ya!
