Snippets Playground Challenge #420

 I can hardly believe it is two weeks since my last post here but I've not been idle, just been sewing and doing other things rather than making cards.  Thought I should get back into the swing before I forget how 😉😉.  There is a bumper prize on offer this time (too many items to photograph) but there are details to be found HERE and this is another 'Ruby's Memory challenge. Well worth popping over to the Playground where the sun always shines.

 Pretty well everything on this card came from my Snippets collection  apart from the card blank.  Admittedly the flowers came from a printed image which has two sets per page and this was a half page left over from a previous project.  The dies came with a magazine which also includes a disc for printing the images and some background papers. The snippet of white card was embossed with a floral E/F and I found an oddment of green which toned with the leaves on the image.

Flowers - Charisma design from Tattered Lace magazine (not recent)
Backgrounds - CD from the same magazine


  1. Very pretty card Val…lovely soft colours..a good buy I would say
    It’s so nice that we have other hobbies to fill our time up …


  2. That's a really pretty feminine birthday card and I love the sentiment on the front - being that little bit different from the usual "Happy Birthday".

    There's coffee and almond biscuits on offer up in the Playground Treehouse today.
