Challenge #381 Pixie Snippets Playground

The lovely Di has made a super card to showcase the prize on offer for this challenge.  Worth taking a look if you are a fan of Art Deco - it is certainly a set which I would like to I've made my Snippets card to take along to the playground.  I started with with the stamped flowers which were made from snippets of white card quite a while ago - no dies available for these so they were literally 'snipped' using scissors.  Amongst my box of miscellaneous pieces of patterned paper I found a suitable piece of floral paper and trimmed to fit the card but as it was a bit smaller than I like I found a snippet of yellow card slightly larger but which had the middle missing and as it is the bottom layer, of course no-one will know!!  Snippets of white card were used to die cut the fancy bordered piece and the label on which the sentiment is stamped.  Another snippet of matching yellow was used to back the label and finally a snippet of ribbon.  Oh and I nearly forgot the green snippet which was used to die cut the leaves.
