Snippets Playground week 223

The Pixie Snippets Playground Challenge seems to come around so quickly and if you take a look you will see the usual great card from Di as well as her picks from last week's entries - not forgetting a lovely prize on offer.

One way and another there are lots of snippets on my card including some stray flowers which were surplus to requirements for two previous projects.  Fortunately I felt that their colours would work together and of course I had snippets of card and paper left over as well and the dotty piece  was in one of my many oddments boxes.  I die cut the square shapes and layered them up; cut the central circular elements using the same die set before punching out a computer sentiment.  The flowers were sprayed with some shimmer spray before layering up with two small scraps from a large white die cut swirl - told you I can't bear to throw anything away!

Dies - Noble Pierced squares; Australian collection Sydney (both Sue Wilson); Sizzix swirl
Flowers - Stamps and punches, Flower Shop, Beautiful Bunch, Petite Petals all Stampin Up
Dotty Paper - Paper Factory Funky Hand
Shimmer - Goosebumps spray


  1. Wow Val - this is just fabulous. I love all the layers and what a great colour combination as well. Beautiful card.
