Pixie Snippets Take Two

In an effort to use up a few odd bits and pieces I decided to make my second card for the Pixie Snippets challenge (three in two weeks for a chance to win a pretty butterfly stamp).  Again the only item which wasn't lying around on my desk is the embossed background - a piece of Centura Pearl embossed and sponged with ink.  The corners were ones which I'd die cut  specifically for a card recently and then realised that my topper had been stamped onto cream card and of course the corners are white pearl - senior moment I reckon! The swirl, flowers and their background were all cut from scraps.  Well that's  two posts in one day but now I must get on with something else so no more from me today.

Background - Centura Pearl card embossed with Crafter's Companion Rose Vine folder
Corners - Marianne die, also Centura Pearl card
Mat - die cut using Stampin' Up Apothecary Accents die, embossed with Swiss Dots
Flowers - Marianne die and Stampin' Up punches
Swirl - Sue Wilson Grand Vinery die set
