Sunday Snippets

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are having a good Sunday wherever you are. The heavens have opened here, it's wild and stormy and the temperature seems to have plummeted ... a day for staying in and making a snippet card for Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 202.
Just for a change, I've chosen non-traditional colours of brown and tan to set of the white embossed panel - I think it works very well. Once again, I've managed to find plenty of bits and bobs from stash, including the snippet of tan card used to mat the panel. I made the embossed panel, Sizzix Hero Arts Christmas Words, inking the word 'merry' with a light touch of distress ink, Tim Holtz Pumice Stone, months (maybe more than a year) ago. The back layer is a patterned paper from Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium. This 8"x 8" paper pack is old, from 2011, so time to stop stroking it, I think!
 I've used some strips left over to decorate the inside and back. The card is embellished with brown grosgrain ribbon and a Wild Orchid poinsettia which has been covered with Xmas Red Stickles to give it a lovely sparkle.

I'm submitting the card to the following challenges:
CHNC challenge 254 - bright or sparkly colours
CHNC challenge extra for November 2015 - where anything goes, as long as it's Christmas
Craft for the Craic - Something Glittery for November

If this weather keeps up there will be no In A Vase On Monday tomorrow. Not to worry, will just have to make another card to share instead :)

Happy Sunday, Happy Crafting,

Great card Elizabeth. The non traditional colours work well with the white embossed panel.
