A little bit of...

...crafting.

After spending a week away from work in which I did little or no crafting, I thought I should get something done before I returned to work. So Sunday evening I sat down and made a card.

I have a variety of Kanban bits & pieces that I have accumulated over the years so I thought it about time I made use of at least some of it.

I had a couple of die-cut sheets including this...
...it was intended to make a 'tunnel' card so I rummaged for some toning bits...
 ...all die-cut so it was very quick & easy.
After a bit of a play around with all the elements that I pulled out of my stash - I came up with this...
...I think that most of it came from the same Kanban range but I'm not sure because the bits were in a polybag (I'd obviously sat and popped out a load of die-cuts at some point). I love the shade of blue and all the gold foiling but I felt it needed a little 'extra'. This came in the form of some blue adhesive flat-back gems that I added to the centre of the flowers. The gems were a bargain find in "The Works".

So there you have it, a quick and easy card........................................................
