>I needed a quick birthday card and decided to make a 3×3 card using the hostess set Playful Pieces. I haven’t played with this set yet and it has so many possibilities.  

For this card I started with a 6×3 piece of Baja Breeze and layered a piece of Nursery Suite Speciality DP on that.  The present is stamped in Regal Rose with an Early Espresso Bow. I sponged Regal Rose around the edge. This is layered on Early Espresso and then Regal Rose.  I didn’t have thin ribbon to match so I used some Martha Stewart ribbon that is pretty close Baja Breeze.  That’s it.  Pretty quick!
