Another snippets Card

I've just made another card which I realise could qualify for the Pixie Snippets challenge because it is  a mixture of die cutting, embossing, stamping and punching all using snippets of kraft and cream card - details of items used are below. The larger lacy die was used to cut out from the cream layer before embossing only with the matching outline die and the smaller dies from the set used to layer up for the sentiment.

Decorative dies - from Sue Wilson Greek Island collection
Border die - from Sue Wilson New York collection
Ivy leaves - from Sue Wilson
Sentiment - computer generated
Flowers - Stampin' Up stamps with matching punches

I've chosen poppies for Pixie Snippets challenge this week and again apart from the background everything else was produced from snippets around my craft room.  I stamped the poppies in white onto kraft card and embossed with white detail powder before colouring with pencils (Polychromos). More layers were cut from various scraps to tone with the background; sentiment was computer generated and popped onto some die cut shapes; finally a snippet of leafy die cut and some matching card candi were added - why is it my snippets pile never seems to get any smaller???

Poppy stamp - Chocolate Baroque
Dies - Spellbinder labels  and remainder by Cuttlebug
