Snippets and a Sketch

The lovely Jules has given us another great layout sketch for March - see it HERE - and I've chosen to use it for my Snippets Challenge card. These are two brilliant blogs to visit for inspiration when the Mojo goes walkabout as it does seem to from time to time. Challenge #399 is another one which this time is for Ruby's Memory and the prize is an adorable and very appropriate stamp.  Apart from the base card and the image which is from the remnants of a pad of  bear designs which I've had for quite a long time, everything else on the card comes from my snippets mountain.  Took me a while to sort out bits and pieces which would all tone with each other but got there in the end I think and of course following sketches like this is another great way of using up some of the ever-growing collection of  scraps which I can't bear to throw out.

The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that this is more or less a CASE of the card which Jules made but using different colours.  The image was cut using a circle die, sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of card and the flower stamped and fussy cut using up the tiniest scrap left after trimming the pink piece.

Image - from a Lili of the Valley pad of bear images from a few years ago
Flower - stamp from a set of florals designed by Christina Griffiths (Card Making Magic)
Square - die by Phill Martin
Pink layer - corners rounded using Papermania corner punch 
Circle die - stitched circles die set Tim Holtz for Sizzix

  4. Hi Val

    Pleased you liked my sketch enough to have a play with it and thank you for the shout out.

    I think I will be using this one quite a lot. I have a few favourites in my collection that I tend to home in on quite frequently.

    Love your paper choices and the perfectly matching daisy!

    Think I have that image too!

    Hope your weekend has been a good one.

    Love Jules xx
