What's on My Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...yes it's that magical day of the week when all us crafters throw open the doors of our crafty spaces and let the world and his wife in for a little snoop...the brainchild of the lovely Julia over at WOYWW.  I had a bit of dilemma about the title of this post...technically it should read...WOYWW...Less is More Challenge and Electrifying Lightbulb Moment ..but that doesn't exactly trip off the tongue so let's start off with what's on my workdesk today...
I was going about my crafty business in the cubbyhole...stamping up some die cuts to make some tissue paper flowers for a workshop project when I had an electrifying lightbulb moment...this doesn't happen too often and certainly not often enough for my liking.  The question is...could I use the negative image to make a card and voila...seeing as the challenge this week over at Less Is More is...
DON'T SCRAP IT...
the otherwise "would have been thrown in the bin" bit of scrap paper turned into this...


and in a perfect world...if all cards came together as easily as this...life would be a breeze.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
