This Thursday - Challenge 15 A Round Tuit

This challenge title made me smile, and is so apt for me :)).
Great DT work and Fatima as this weeks guest also Great prize of 7 gypsies goodies from the Craft Emporium.
I've been meaning to make a book cover/holder for post it notes for a while and so needed no more encouragement! I also need to make a note so it gets a chance of getting done :))

My first attempt ended in the bin but I quite like this one!
If I make another I may trim 1cm off one of the long edges, I also discovered you can easily trim a standard card in half and make 2 covers!!

This was made on a sheet of A5 Card, run through the Big Shot using A Texture plate from the series 3 set. I then brayerd inks over the top, then cut and score the card to fit the post it notes.
