My head went CLICK

After years of papercrafting I can usually look at a card and see what's been done and think of how I would do it or even a modification or development but this idea has never clicked with me. I think I've seen it done by Julie Hickey and Paula Pascual but only on blogs or in magazines-never in real life and it's never clicked with me what a simple effective popout it is. Suddenly watching Dawn the other evening I had a Eureka moment and thought what a drip I'd been when I couldn't see for the life of me what was going on before.In the morning I couldn't wait to get in my craft room and put this together. Two extra score lines added either side of the central spine then the floating elements-which I've done in loads of other ways-then decorate the front and

Thanks Dawn. I did buy a couple of things this week but didn't succumb to a cinch although I was tempted because I know I just haven't got the time to get the use out of it.
I used all Craftwork Cards products to make this card except the Ice Stickles for the daisy centres.
Bet you could make a great bloke card using those Tim Holz cog things or just circles stamped with a pattern. Don't use scalloped cards though!
The daisies were a treat from Sue at Craftwork Cards for entering one of the blog competitions. I was surprised when they dropped through my letterbox. There are competitions running throughout the World Cup on the Craftwork Cards blog
