Buttermilk/Zodiac and Pixies Snippets Playground

My card today is for two challenges, Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge and Pixies Snippets Playground. The butterfly challenge asks that you use Buttermilk colour and or something from the Zodiac. Pixies Snippets asks that you use snippets/scraps. While rummaging through my scraps box I found some buttermilk colour card and some brown that went with it. I cut the card to size and then stamped a script stamp from Inkylicious onto the buttermilk card using Distress Ink in Tea Dye colour. Then I inked around the edges with the Tea Dye ink, I found a doily that had been cut sometime ago from scraps, I inked this around the edges too and stamped a Lily of the Valley sentiment stamp. There was a little brown card left over and there was enough to cut out two butterflies to add to the card, making it a Gemini card. I popped it all onto a 6x6 white card base.



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

Sue

This is a gorgeous card made from all your scraps but actually looks a million dollars. Very classy. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden with your Gemini card. Hugs Mrs A.

Realy lovely card Sue and a very clever way to use up snippets - and also manage to make something depicting Gemini as well for Mrs A. She does come up with some tough themes :)

Hugs
