To brighten your day

Hey everyone,

Mr Kiss,  rushed out this morning to buy a couple of these chairs from B & Q (a bargain at only £10 each)
and since then, we have had nothing but torrential rain.
That's about right for the bank holiday weekend, isn't it?

Oh well, it gave me time to play in my craft room :-)

Here's a 'use it up' card.


Lurking at the bottom of my paper box I discovered a decoupage pad that had never been used.
It's full of die cuts that you use to 'build' a flower, but I popped out some shapes and used them on their own.
I wanted to mix the colours up so that my card was bright and cheerful.

For the smaller circles I used an everyday, office, hole punch and I popped some of the shapes up on foam pads
to add a bit of interest.


Challenges.

Caroline this is such a great card. What a great way to use up some scrap paper we never seem to what to threw away.

Blimey, they ARE good for ten quid, I could do with some of those I'll have to get down there. Love your vibrant design, just what's needed with all this rain and your placement is perfect.
