Pixie Snippets challenge #325

It is time to visit the Playground again for the fortnightly challenge and this time I'm taking along a card made to fill a gap in the Anniversary section of my box.  I've used a set of dies which also has a matching embossing folder and some stamps and apart from the base card and a piece of patterned paper everything else uses snippets of card in toning colours.  The embossed panel was cut from some card which has a 'whitewash' effect on one side and a darker plain colour on the reverse and once embossed it was sanded lightly to emphasise the design.  Some snippets of cream pearl card also came into use for some of the hearts and the banner. One of the stamps was used on the centre heart and three of the tiniest hearts were scattered onto the background.  Die cut words onto a cream banner and that's it, a simple anniversary card.

 As always there is a great prize on offer this fortnight and Di has made a card to showcase this and again there are the usual helpful hints on how it could be used - well worth popping along to take a look and maybe making something using up some of your own snippets. 

Dies and Embossing Folder - Tonic
Banner - Sue Wilson Die
Wording - Crafter's Companion dies
