Art Deco (hopefully)

Good morning all.

The rain arrived as forecast yesterday and freshened everything up, it's definitely warmer than it was at the beginning of the week too.

I needed a card for a swap with the theme of "Art Deco". I'd nothing in my stash vaguely resembling Art Deco....until I remembered this C&C kit which I hope looks at least faintly Art Deco!

I've no idea what the kit was called as I was given it by a friend. I chopped a card blank in half and layered the front onto a white card blank. White die cut is a Spellbinders die, making it's first appearance and I used the back of the card blank to cut the inner die. Decoupage is layered up with foam pads. Card finished off with a bow and some gems.
Not really my kind of card but needs must!
