Pixie's Playground Challenge #402

 The challenge this time around is another for Ruby's Memory and you can read all about it by following the link HERE.  As usual there is a great prize to be won by one lucky person so why not sort out some of your snippets and make a card.  Mine this time around is a floral one using up various snippets and bits and pieces lying around on my desk or in the overflowing snippets boxes.  Background papers were left over from other projects and the white rectangle was cut from a snippet of card, as was the sentiment label.  I came across the vase stamped onto a scrap of card so that was fussy cut and coloured.  A leaf was stamped onto the white background before adding the punched flowers (tiny snippets here).  Finally the flower centres and the tiny butterflies came from a little container which I keep for any useful pieces of 'fall-out' or waste from die cutting.  You know how difficult I find it to throw anything away which could possibly be used on a project ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Hi Val

    A pretty card and great use of your snippets. Your vase and those flowers look really lovely.

    Like you I can't throw things away either. I save the smallest of pieces and it is surprising how often they come in useful for little die cuts (as proven by your super tiny butterflies). The only problem I have is how to store them in a sensible way - which I haven't discovered yet LOL!!!!

    Hope your week is going well.

    Love Jules xx
