JAI #52

This is my second post for today, scroll down for the January PTI Blog Hop

When I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I would use.  I have had this piece of patterned paper (well actually, it has a sibling in another colour) kicking around for quite some time, a very elegant design that I was sure I would have no trouble using -  why didn't I get more?? Thank goodness I didn't, it just hasn't seemed right for what I want to do .... till now.  As soon as I saw that "bracket" at the bottom I knew its time had come. 
Ta, da!!!!  I had to chop up an entire 12 x 12 sheet to achieve it, what a waste!!  But what was worth it was my husband saying how much he liked it.  Maybe I could use its twin to make him a Valentines card, except it's blue.

And also  Happy Australia Day!!! (back to school tomorrow)
