Pixies Snippets Playground

I'm off to Pixies Snippets Playground with my card today. This was make as a "Just because" card for a crafty friend and my snippet was the wood effect background. I had made several in different colours earlier this year including two in this colour way which I had not used. So that was my starting place for the card, I then rummaged through my stencils and found these two, which are from Imagination Crafts, and then used some white pearlised embossing paste through the stencils. Straight away before it dried I sprinkled some purple glitter from my glitter mountain over the top and left to dry. Next I found my Lavinia stamp with the verse "Don't Let Life Dull Your Sparkle" stamped onto a scrap of white card and the cut the words apart edging with a little bit of black promarker I then stuck the onto the front. Next I mounted the topper onto some black card and then a piece of matching mirri card (it matches better in real life than in this photo). Finally I found a lovely poem about friend and printed this off onto an insert before giving to my friend. I'm glad to say the she loved it.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Popping in before I say 'goodnight' from down under...fabulous card Sue, I have sort of forgotten my Lavinia stamps [used the leaves the other day], but it just takes inspiration from a lovely blogging buddy. Great colours and love the sentiment, though haven't seen that one. Fabulous background.xx

Such a lovely card with the fairy against the wood background and the 'cut up' words are a really good idea.
