Unusually for me.........

.......I've finished my card for the CD Sunday blog - 4 days early! I've needed to destress so have immersed myself in crafting. The way things are going there'll be a few more cards before the week is out. The theme this week is Black and Blue and as I had a birthday card to make for a female relative I knew what topper I was going to use. I bought a sheet of Kanban toppers at a craft show in Cardiff and as there wasn't a show last year I must have had it since October 2009!
The backing paper is from Funky Hand's cd Funky Seasons. It's designed as a sheet of small squares but when I held the topper over it I preferred the squares to be diamonds - so turned the paper around. I then found some square gems that I also turned on the side to repeat the pattern of the paper. I don't know if other cd crafters do the same as me but when I'm looking for a suitable BP I end up printing loads of sheets as the colours always look different on screen. So I used one of the 'extra' sheets as an insert and blinged it up with some peel offs.
I've got the idea for 2 more cards in my head so while I'm at the computer I'll be printing off a few more things from cds.
