Snippets Challenge

Here's my entry to the Snippets Challenge 11 for fun in the playground.  As Di said, I can't use the Pogo Sticks sadly, but I can have a go on the swings.  What lovely memories of playing on the swings and even more fun on the roundabouts too!  No health and safety in those days (gosh does that make me sound old!!!) but it was loadssssssssssssssss more fun!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've used all snippets on this card, no whole sheets were harmed whatsoever in the making of this card.  Here you can see my 'Snippet Envelope' as I call it.  It's an A4 size pack which some card came in and I now use it for my snippets to reside in.  As you can see I've had a go at some MS punching (my one and only PATP set!). 

The card is cheapo card from the £ shop, it is perfect for using as matting and layering and also MS punching of course!  I also use the plain white card from the £ shop as well, ideal for die cutting, too light for the actual cards, but brilliant for the embellishments.  Also thanks again, to Di, for the gorgeous ribbon!  Such a fantastic rich colour and perfectly suits the CS and the colouring.

Talking of which I used the white card to make the flowers, offcuts from the snippets envelope of course, and added some stickles glitter, and some plain brads I've had for eons!  I got two packs of them in a sale, and am now on the second pack!  Plain but they do the job!  I've also used nail varnish on them to change the colour and it works fine!  If there's a way round it, I'll find it!  My pocket is not never ending sadly and I really need to win the lottery!!!

I'm really proud of this card and I'm not ashamed to say it!  Hope you like it too....

Enjoy!

The card is lovely Karen. I don't have much luck with my PATP punches so mine generally go in the bin, must use your idea of a snippets bag.

Really super card Karen (it is the one I had a sneak peek of, how strange!). Gorgeous colouring and it all goes together perfectly - you've every right to be proud of it! Fancy an extra bottle of playground milk this afternoon? You can have mine if you like :)
