Cat and Butterfly

 This card was inspired by a YouTube video made by the talented Eileen Godwin - Just Google her name and you will find her.  This is not a direct CASE because I've used different stamps and colours.  No sentiment added for the moment but there is plenty of 'white space' should I decide to add one although I think it might spoil the CAS effect and people often like to have a card with no words so that they can write what they like on the insert.

Pixie Snippets Challenge #415

 Time to call in at the Playground again for the latest challenge to use up some more of my snippets of card.  All of the cream card pieces came from my snippets collection but I did cut into a new sheet of the peachy pink pearl card and of course used a card blank.  I always have lots of cream and white snippets in varying sizes and do tend to save even the smallest bits!  The owl stamps used on this card came from a set intended for Halloween and/or Christmas but I've adapted them a bit to make this Anniversary card - the little heart dangling from the branch in fact stamps as a scary spider 😉.  I do like to extend the use of my stamps where I can to make something different.  Dies from various sources were used to build up the design.  Do pop along to see the lovely geometric card made by Di and also take a look at the really nice floral stamp which one lucky person will win.
