Solo This time.

I have mentioned before about how The Doc's Custard Tarts from a certain supermarket come in a nice diagonal blue stripy box and I always salvage as much of the box as I can. Well they don't anymore! The box design has been changed to a peachy coloured striped one and as you can see below I have put the first salvaged box to good use.  I sat and painted another (single image this time) Woodware  Anemone  stamp on Sunday to placate The Doc for sending the last card off to Portugal!

The image has been mounted onto orange card which I have adhered to the cut down base of the box. There was just enough of the orange card left to make the spine of the card and attach the front acetate sheet which you can just see in the  photo above. The sentiment is a black adhesive one from my stash which I stuck to the white part of the image. I have left the front acetate sheet completely plain so that it wouldn't detract from the flower.

I got custard tarts from work last week and was really looking forwards to one once home. My hubby and his mate pinched them as soon as I was through the door. The nerve!
A lovely card, great recycling and the perfect matching colour combo. Loving the flower.

Hugs Erika. x
