Snippets Playground Challenge #411

 There is another challenge this time in the Playground for Ruby's Memory - read all about it by following the link and maybe have a go to be in with a chance of winning some great Halloween goodies.  I imagine pretty well every card maker will have a supply of 'snippets' to use - we can't bear to throw out even the smallest pieces!!  For my card I've cut into a sheet of design paper for the main background and used a card blank but everything else came from my snippets mountain, even down to the tiny dots used as flower centres.  I have some dies which cut out rows of tiny holes around shapes and I save all the tiny dots  and store them in small zip-lock style polybags - sad or what but it is a sort of compulsion which some of you will understandđŸ˜‰đŸ˜‰.  I promise you these are the smallest pieces which I 'save'!!The white circle was embossed with 'falling snow' before adding the wreath and the tiny flowers.  Snippet of a different patterned paper was placed behind the circle and I've added a die cut bow and star.  No greeting on the outside of this card because it says 'Christmas' I think.

Wreath - die from Tonic (just the leaves)
Flowers - Tiny flowers dies from John Next Door
Bow and Star - dies from a magazine freebie set (not recent)
Embossing - Falling Snow folder from Stampin' Up
