Project 304: Super simple set with patterned card

My mom loves bright, artistic calendars and frames them month by month on her kitchen wall. 2015's calendar was from Papyrus and the monthly prints were really vibrant. When the year came to an end she sent it to me and, using some templates Papyrus provide, the papers can be turned into folders, book marks, boxes and patterned card. I have now used/distributed everything but the card stock so I decided to whip up a quick little set to give to my mom as a thank you for the calendar. You know what they say, one person's old calendar trash is another person's card-making treasure.

I used these little hummingbirds because I had a nice set of four images in different colors. I kept it super simple: trimmed down the paper to the same size, added a ribbon, cut down some black stock and added a white paper lining inside to make it easier to write on. Bish bash bosh: card set in minutes.
