Blue Birthday

I've been using up some snippets again to make this card which is going in for the two week challenge on Pixie Snippets Playground - I hear there are some great prizes on offer which could help when making Christmas cards for next year.  I was lucky enough to win a large lace background stamp at a recent extravaganza day (Stampin' Up) and came across the piece of card on which I'd tried it out using a blue ink pad so I used a label die to cut out a shape from it, followed by a smaller shape from a snippet of white card - always plenty of those lying around!  The birthday sentiment was die cut from another white scrap and inked with matching colour.Searching through my collection of background papers I found a piece to use which toned nicely and finally finished the card off with a spray of daisies which were die cut from more snippets.

Greeting - Signature die from Joanna Sheen
Lace background - stamp from Stampin' Up
Floral spray - Sue Wilson die
Label shapes - Sizzix dies Stampin' Up.
