Snippets Playground #344

It is time to pop into the playground again with another snippets card - goodness me the weeks seem to fly by don't they.  This time I'm taking along one of my masculine cards although I reckon this could be sent to anyone really as it definitely not pink or too 'fancy'.  Like the lovely Di I also started with a whole piece of paper from a small pad of woodgrain papers, just trimmed a little to fit the base card but everything else on the card was cut from various snippets of green card and watercolour paper.  I stamped the birds and sentiment onto the scraps before die cutting the banners but in the case of the spiky foliage I cut the banner first as I only wanted to use part of a larger stamp for this one.  A fairly simple card but I still managed to get one part wrong - gaily went along cutting out the banners and it wasn't until I came to put it all together that I realised the sentiment was facing the wrong way so it is lucky that I have so many snippets of all sorts to turn to!!  Now of course I have yet another 'spare' banner littering my desk along with various other left overs.

The card which Di has made for inspiration features a really cute creature along with hearts so with Valentine's day looming I guess it would be a handy prize to win.
