Sunday Snippets - Week 135

Hi Everyone,

I planned to post this earlier but the day has just run away from me somehow!

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.

It's just a little card, 4" square, that uses up all sorts of bits, bobs and snippets for Pixie's Snippets Playground. The topper is the leftover piece, the 'waste', after I'd die-cut the fern from Tattered Lace Lavish Blooms Leaves set, from grey card, backed on to white card and then layered on to dark blue Core'dinations. I distressed the edges of the Core'dinations with an emery board to reveal the Kraft core. The base has been embossed with a border from Cuttlebug Just My Type set. The embellishments, a scrap of tartan ribbon and a bright red enamel dot, are from stash.

I almost threw the 'waste' piece away until it occurred to me that it could look quite good with a backing of white card.

The card came together very quickly once I decided on the layout and pulled out the materials from the snippet drawer. In fact, choosing what colour of enamel dot to use took the most time ... there's a lot of colours in the tartan ribbon to choose from :)

The weather has finally broken here. We've had rain all day ... great for the garden, makes sleeping easier, but bad for The Boss. She hates the rain, won't go out in it at all, so she's had cabin fever all day!

I hope you've had a wonderful weekend and I wish you a good week ahead.

Happy Crafting,

This really is a darling little snippets card Elizabeth. A great save of the leftover from die cutting, and the ribbon bow offset by the enamel dot is perfect!

Hugs, Di xx
