Snippets Time Again

Another week has just flown by and it is time for the new challenge in the Pixie Snippets playground and Di has made us a pretty Easter card for inspiration this week - also of course using items which form the prize if you are lucky enough to get your name picked in the draw.  For my card this week I used a fairly large snippet to die cut a background square which I inked to show up some of the detail before removing the die. This was backed with another large snippet of coloured card. The flowers were stamped onto snippets of white card and although there is a matching die set for these I don't have it so they were snipped out with scissors.  The centres were die cut from snippets of coloured card to match up with the ink used for stamping the flowers and sentiment.

This card also fits the floral theme on Stamping Sensations this month so I'm popping it on there as well so two challenges covered with one card!

Background - Create-a-Card die by Crafter's Companion
Flowers - Shaded Peony stamps from Creative Expressions
Sentiment - Stampin' Up stamp on die cut using Marianne die
Flower Centres - All about the middles dies by Tattered lace
Colour - Pool Party card and ink pad from Stampin' Up
