Poppy Snippets

You know when you buy something crafty and think that it's so fabulous that you are certain to use it all the time but then never do.... well that's what happened with this Memory Box 'prim poppy' die. I bought it back in 2012 and this is only it's second outing, so when looking through the folder deciding what die to use for my card I felt rather guilty when my eyes rested on it.

I  made this card entirely from snippets of card - hence the small size (about 3 x 4 inches) and design - with just the addition of a couple of gems.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'

Creative Inspirations challenge 'your favourite things'  they just have to be dies and gems

Creative Card Crew challenge 'die-cut'

Addicted to CAS challenge 'inlaid dies'

Mod Squad challenge 'make a negative a positive'

Scrapy Land challenge 'anything goes with a brand of die Scrapy Land sells'

Your card is beautiful Andrea. The colours look very stylish. It's a lovely die and I've only used mine a couple of times and I don't know why. You've inspired me to get it out again. Barbxx

Snap, everytime I see someone use this die I think to myself I MUST use it again, as I do love it myself.

I sure do like the simplicity of your card - beautifully done. I am trying to do a little catch up - I am afraid it is way to little and way to late!
