Kindle cover cards

A few weeks ago I bought a Kindle with some birthday money. It came in a sturdy box which I found yesterday and thought I'd put it in the recycling bin, but when I opened up the sleeve that had been around the Kindle I discovered the the inside was black with kraft letters on it - far too good to put into the recycling bin:

So I made two cards, just using black cards blanks and some kraft paper:

These are for:

CRAFT 176: monochromatic (the first card)
Sentimental Sundays 124: black/white + another colour
Card crafters circle: black, white and one other colour
Crafty Ann 76: black and white + one other colour
Tanda teaser 202: all things manly
Card mania 5: happy birthday (second card)
Lollipop crafts 92: happy birthday (second card)
Alphabet: R for recycle, repurpose
Unstampabelles 16: recycled or repurposed
Perfect sentiments 53A: happy birthday
