Kindle Surprise!

Ok, so most of you konw the advert as a Kinder surprise, where there's a little toy in with the chocolate egg, but this time, it was lovely packaging around my new kindle...hence the name Kindle Surprise!!!

So, using said wrapping, I made the recycled card below. The image in Penny Black & the punched border done using an MS punch.

Crafty Cardmakers - Recycle
Crafty Creations - Recycle
Allsorts - Black + White + one other colour - I chose brown.


PS The Kindle is brilliant too & for those of you who like a good read, have you tried Linwood Barclay's books?
- Definitely my favourite author at the moment.

Great card, love the idea of using the Kindle packaging - although as a librarian I'm totally against Kindles (only joking I'd actually love one of my own).
Thanks so much for sharing your fab idea with us at Crafty Creations this week.
