Clearing my desk of snippets, scraps and leftovers ... Day 2

Hi Folks

Hope you are all well. Another scheduled post today and by the time you read this, I plan to have my feet up and be living the life of Riley in the rural hinterlands of Scotland. Well, that's my plan but you can be sure my DH will have a jaunt planned instead :)

Right on to the snippet card for Day 2. To recap, I've challenged myself to use the scraps straight off my desk rather than file them in the snippet box ... see previous post for more details.

back
From the pile - black card, cream pearlescent card, kraft card
Additional supplies: stamps - Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Stampers Anonymous; ink - Memento tuxedo Black; punches - Martha Stewart arch edge punch and Stampin' Up oval scallop and plain oval shape; cream paint (Pebeo); plaid ribbon (local shop); flat-backed pearls.

That's it for today. Keep well and take care.

Happy crafting,

A lovely dramatic card - and I love the diamond detail. This is a great idea to use scraps rather than save them (or bin them).
Hugs, Neet xx
