Mini Business Cards

My mini cards from MOO are really cute.  It was very easy to upload my own images and use their templates to add my own twist.  This was a spur of the moment thing last weekend, I randomly snapped some artwork and sketches in my notebook.  I spent about an hour experimenting with different templates and voila! I have personalized business cards:)
