Snippets Challenge #390

 Time to pop along to the Playground for this fortnight's challenge and certainly well worth the visit because there is a super prize as always for the lucky person whose name is drawn.  Super card for inspiration as well with an excellent explanation as to how it was made.  For my card this time I've made something sewing related because I know quite a few people who would appreciate receiving such a card. Started with a square snippet of cream card, trimmed to fit the sie of card and also cut a circle from another cream snippet.  Placed the circle into the centre of the square and lightly marked with pencil before stamping some flowers around in a kind of 'wreath'.  Stamped and heat embossed the sewing machine and words onto the circle before sponging the edges of both shapes, popping it all onto a toning die cut square to assemble the card.

Stamps - from a free magazine set designed by Phill Martin
Dies used - nesting shapes from Tonic and Sizzix
