My card today is to be taken over to join in at Pixies Snippets Playground - Week 221.
I used some lilac coloured card for the base then a piece of white card stamped randomly with a Sizzix newsprint stamp for the background and rubbed Distress ink round the edge.
Quite a few years ago my dear SIL Anne had a beautiful bouquet of roses sent to me for a special birthday.
The rose image was included with instructions for keeping the roses fresh for as long as possible.
The image was so pretty I wasn't going to throw it away and it went in with my snippets of card for using later.
Now I've been using stuff up since the beginning of the year so out it came. I cut it up, made a tag, added distress ink to the edges and a little glitter. With three gems and a tiny piece of ribbon added my card was finished.
We crafters seldom throw anything away do we?
