The week count on Pixie's Snippets Playground has reached an unbelievable 200! Congratulations to our Head Snippeteer, Di, and thanks too. Without this weekly challenge, my snippet mountain would be huge ... probably big enough to be seen from outer space. What's more, all the humour and banter makes participating lots of fun.
To celebrate I made this card in pink, Di's favourite colour.
The topper was made using a very pretty embossing folder, X-Cut Tri-Boss Butterflies. First, I embossed two largish scraps of white and pink card, then fussy cut the butterflies from the pink piece which I later adhered, using glue gel to create dimension, over the butterflies on the white topper. Before adding the butterflies I stamped the quotation, a Lily of the Valley stamp, with Memento London Fog ink and the dainty little flower flourish stamp in Color Box's Orchid. That stamp is from Stampin Up's Simply Wonderful stamp set, one of the two won in last week's prize draw - yeah! The base card is made from an A4 sheet of the pink card (Papermill Direct's Pink Sorbet) cut in half and folded to create an A6 size card. Finally, pink grosgrain ribbon, Opal Liquid Pearls and Cotton Candy Stickles provided the finishing touches.
Inside the card, the little flower flourish is stamped in the right bottom corner.
I really did begin to write up this post yesterday afternoon but then got distracted by Strictly Come Dancing and Downton Abbey, after which I was too tired to do anything other than go to bed ... what can I say, my internal clock was still on summer time!
We're off soon, taking The Boss to the vet's for her monthly injections so will have to leave blog-hopping until later.
Have a great evening.
