Snippets Playground 134

This card for the Pixie Snippets challenge started out with a good sized snippet of Stampin' Up designer paper from their latest 'In Colours' - a friend kindly gave me a few pieces so that I could see for myself how lovely they are and I do love the combination of blackberry and honey.  These new colours are on my wish list but for the time being I rooted through my bits boxes and came up with some pieces which I could use and found that Rich Razzleberry and More Mustard tone in so I used some of these 'snippets' to die cut the banners.  The dictionary stamp was used on an odd piece of white paper, sponged and over stamped with some splodges.  Flowers were stamped with the same colours - luckily I have the matching ink pads.

Background - Stampin' Up designer paper and Dictionary stamp, splodges from French Foliage set
Banners - Sizzix banners dies (SU)
Sentiment - from Wetlands stamp set (SU) oval punch
Flowers - Beautiful Bunch stamp set with matching punch
Leaves - Marianne die
