Snippets and B's

Hello to you all on this very cold but sunny day. I'm planning on having a restful weekend with the heating switched up and a bit of crafting to amuse myself.

I've made a card using snippets of ribbon, card and paper and the last three of my larger flowers. I started with the flowers and the snippet of ribbon - it was a case of use them or bin them - then I found the piece of green spotty paper and I'd already cut my new TH background die from a snippet of card when I first got it to see what it looked like, and after a tiny bit of cutting to size and sticking in place I'd got the start of the card. Next up was trying different nesting dies (they'd already been cut from snippets and kept in a box for when they were needed) and I settled on a TH stitched oval and also a Cheery Lyn butterfly with a couple of gems added. So after stamping the Clearly besotted sentiment I stuck the last two bits in place to finish the card. I know it was a very back to front way of doing things but it's just the way things happen sometimes!

I'm heading over to the following challenges with this

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use your snippets'

Allsorts challenge 'I spy something beginning with B'  Blooms, Bow, Butterfly
