Pixie Snippets Challenge 315 and 316

Well so much for trying to blog on a more regular basis - not managed to keep to it this week which seems to have disappeared more quickly than usual.  It will be good getting back to normal where each week starts with the correct day with no Bank Holidays to cause confusion.  I have however been pretty busy trying to catch with a long outstanding stitching project which I need to finish so I've not been wasting time.

It is time for the first Playground Challenge of the year and I've gone for a floral card which uses up some snippets of watercolour paper which was coloured using Pixie Powders.  A fairly large piece was embossed and then some Glitter Kiss was applied to give  it some sparkle and then I found a spare frame lying around which had been die cut from silver pearl card.  The remaining snippets of coloured and silver card were die cut into flowers and leaves to enhance the oval frame (also assembled using snippets).  Finally a sentiment was stamped onto yet another snippet of white card.  There is an interesting and apparently very useful item as a prize this week - take a look and maybe enter the challenge for an opportunity to go into the draw.
