A Lucky Win

 I was lucky recently and won a lovely prize in the Pixie Snippets Playground challenge - some dies, a stencil and pack of sentiment stickers so I thought it appropriate to use at least some of the prize to make a card for the current challenge.  I started off with a fairly large snippet of cream card and used the stencil to emboss the card before brushing it lightly with some Distress ink and then over stamping with a small swirl stamp.  I'd found an already cut piece of trellis which was a left over from a project made ages ago.  This was white so I inked it with the same ink so that it would tie in nicely.  A selection of smaller snippets in varying colours was  then used to cut out some flowers and swirls using the die set and these were arranged onto the trellis.  Finally a sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of cream card, die cut into a banner with a slightly larger one in brown as a backing.  Thought it just needed a little something extra so a tiny bee was die cut from brown card.

There is another great prize on offer for the current challenge so if you'd like to be in with a chance why not make a card using up some of your snippets - take a look at the inspiration card, I love it.
