Anniversary and Snippets

Hi everyone, firstly apologies for not being around this last week but life has been a bit of a pest and got in the way of blogging.

I've made a promise to myself to use up some of my (very) old stash and first of all I pulled some 5 inch square pearlescent base cards out of the cupboard - they have been there for years!!  There are 10 in total so you can expect to see a few CAS designs with the use of many snippets and other bits from my stash.

So here's the first card I've made....
I had some small Hunkydory notelet bases which I cut in half (the striped card) and stuck to the base card. Then I added Cheery Lynn 'fanciful flourish' and 'miniature rose' dies with a Dovecraft punched 'daisy' and pearl centre. The sentiment was done on the computer and cut with a Marianne die and finally I added a Hunkydory butterfly.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Allsorts challenge 'any occasion other than birthday'
The ABC challenge 'D is for die-cuts'

Thanks for taking the time to pop by and for all your comments, I really do appreciate it.
