This card is really built around the stamped and die cut dragonfly which I found amongst the clutter on my desk - couldn't bear to throw it away!  I found some pieces of the same colour card along with some Centura Pearl in white and put this together, adding a few gems along the way.  Luckily I've not forgotten how to put a card together while I've been on my sewing marathon!!

Background cut using Sue Wilson pierced square die with SW corners  added in the same card
Decorative dies - Tonic
Dragonfly - from memory it was a free stamp and die on a magazine

Time for Pixie Snippets Playground

Somehow I missed visiting the playground last week and I've actually not made a card for nearly two weeks - must certainly do something about that or I'll never get through my card and paper mountain!!  I do have something (yes you've guessed - another bag) for the challenge this week using the remaining snippets of my upcycled denim skirt which I'd cut up to make the dolphin bag.  I liked the look of this pattern, again from Debbie Shore, and thought I'd have a go at this small handbag which has more work involved than some of the ones I've made.  There are D-rings to attach the handles which I like; strips of contrasting fabric with top stitching and also a magnetic clasp which is always a bit of a worry just in case I poke the holes in the wrong places and thus spoil the whole project.  Luckily all went well and I'm pleased with the result.

Di has made a lovely card this week using a handy die which is of course the prize on offer and there are some great picks from last week's entries - do take a look and maybe make something using some of your own snippets.
