Snippet Birthday card

Hi everyone, I'm back again, this time I want to share an A6 card I just made up using snippets from my scrap drawer. I'm really pleased with the results, so glad I didn't throw the bits away. I hope you like it.

 And here's a view from another angle.

The papers were from the Forever Friends Pink Parfait pad and started off A5. The leaves are cut using a Gentle Leaf die and the butterfly is Cheery Lynn. The plaque in the middle is Spellbinders Labels Five with faux stitching in black. I've used a rub on which has been in my drawer for years. I've also had the fabric flowers and bright green brad for years. I hope you'll agree that everything goes together brilliantly. 

I would like to show this off in the playground over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Challenge 18. If you haven't had a look at this blog it's well worth a visit and start using up some of those scraps.

Thanks for looking, I'll be back soon with a Christmas card.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
