Sunday Snippets - Get Well Card

Afternoon Everyone

It's late afternoon too. I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. It's been a gorgeously sunny day in Ayr today, the temperature was a positively balmy 56°F (13°C), tempting us outdoors with a visit to the local garden centre. Which explains why I've only just got to posting my Sunday Snippet for our lovely Di at Pixie's Snippets Playground. I'm sharing a card I made and posted mid February - I'm assuming that the recipient has received it by now - although with Royal Mail you can never be too sure of anything!
This is the last of the cards I made when I challenged myself to use leftovers from a scrapbook layout - details posted here.

Supplies used:

  • white card base measuring 4"x 5¾"
  • pink Project Life card used as base layer
  • pink/white patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Collection 
  • topper - cherry blossom die-cut from Tilda Garden Paper Pad
  • snippet of black cardstock trimmed to mat the cherry blossom die-cut
  • ink pad - Ink It Up gold metallic
  • stamp - leaf from Floral Blooms set (came free with a magazine) - difficult to see in the photo but gold leaves are stamped all over the topper
  • sentiment - die-cut words, Get Well Soon,  and the pink butterfly were a gift from a friend
  • glitter glue - Yellow and Black Diamond Stickles

Ah! The sun has gone now and I can feel the chill of the night starting to creep in. Never mind, tomorrow might bring the sun again.

Have a great week everyone.

Hi Elizabeth! How lovely that you found time to come and play - afraid it's very wet in the Playground today so I hope you brought your wellies - and a towel to dry the swings!

Lovely Get Well card and great to see you using up snippets - they never go down though do they, sigh.

Ha, I thought you'd like this week's prize - calling all cat lovers :) xx

This is such a dazzler with the zig-zag pink and white dsp! I'm loving the outlined black mats for the focal image and of course that butterfly is beautiful too!
