Snippet Monday

Hello Everyone

I have this little card to share with you today. It was made for this month's UKPC Swap for which we were challenged to create a card/ATC/ tag/etc., from some new or as yet unused stash. This card is what I came up with and, as I was able to use several snippets as well, I'm submitting it to Di's snippet challenge on Pixie's Snippets Playground.
As it is late and to keep this post short I won't go through all the steps for making the card. Instead, here's a list of the materials used:

  • White card base measuring 4"x 5¾"
  • Satin finish card, mauve & scraps of white for die-cutting
  • Embossing folder - Crafts-Too Trellis
  • Dies - Spellbinders Designer Series, Renaissance Jubilee & Die'sire Edge'ables Mini Victoriana
  • Stamp from Summer in the Garden - free with a magazine
  • Ink pad - Memento Tuxedo Black
  • ProMarkers - Bluebell, Lavender, Lilac, Marsh Green, Pear Green &  Ice Grey1
  • Embellishments - Crystal Stickles and purple satin ribbon

This is a photo of the new/unused stash I used.

Having used so much Never Before Used Schtuff, a term coined by the fabulous Darnell,  I'm submitting the card to her NBUS Challenge #10 . Darnell is celebrating her 5-year blog birthaversary - now that's worth celebrating!

I'm feeling pretty chuffed with myself as this is my second post today. I think I need to go lie down in a darkened room now.

Thanks to everyone who visits and if you leave a comment I consider that a bonus.

Take care everyone,

Gorgeous card Elizabeth and such a pretty image too. Of course the embossed background is one of my faves - and what a lot of new goodies you used as well :)

Great NBUS products and great inspiration of how you framed the sweet image, Elizabeth! (It happens to be in my NBUS pile!) Love the e/f and colors, too! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10! Hugs, Darnell
