I spent some time yesterday continuing my ongoing task of tidying up my crafty stash and in particular my desk which seems to accumulate lots of stray bits and pieces which don't always make it onto my current project but which I can't bear to throw out. Rather than just putting them away into my oddments boxes I thought it would be a bit of a challenge to myself to select something from the pile and to build a card around it, preferably without cutting into any new pieces of card or paper.The item in this case was a square of pink card which was the 'waste' from a frame which I'd cut to use on a recent large birthday card. I must say the result on the original card was more subtle than this which is very 'pink'!! A little trawl through my oddments boxes came up with some scraps of paper and card which toned with it and after a bit of die cutting and layering, this is the result. Details of dies used are below as usual.
It so happens that the challenge on Make My Monday this week is 'going around in circles' - include circles in the design - how fortuitous is that?? There are some great circle inspirations from their design team if you take a look.
