5 Minute Christmas Card From Leftover Parts HSSSC201

Pin It Now! So, I was on my way out of town at 4:30 this morning. Packed and prepped for a 1,000 mile trip to Dallas, and I'm taking my final walk through, when suddenly I realize that I need to - WANT to - make my card for the HSS DT that needs to post Monday. And I don't return til Tuesday!  Dilemma.  I realize I have exactly 5 minutes before my hubby comes looking for me. Looking around at my blown-up desk from gift making, I find the parts to make this card...
Every bit of this card was tucked here and there. 
Tag parts from last year. 
Santa for gift card holders I made for a friend. 
Scraps of retired DSP - it's actually 2 pieces hidden behind that white tag. 
Oh, and the JOY!  From the Watercolor kit!  It's cut from "joyeaux". 
Here's the sketch:
I have to admit, I didn't even have the sketch I the same room while making my card...just made it from memory. The key element I remembered was the circle. It's close enough for me :)
I did cut the card base at 3-3/4" x 5-1/2" so the Santa tag could hang off a bit. 

So what do you think?  Do you have a few minutes to make a "Franken-card" from your scraps?!  I'd love to see what you do!  

Have a blessed and creative day~ Erika
