Flower snippets

I have had this card blank for years, back when I used to cross stitch cards - I kept putting it back in the card box and then I decided I would use it!!!!!

So this is the result with some added die cuts from the snippets box. I also used some paints to colour the embossed flowers already on the card. I promise you in real life it looks much better than in the photo LOL!

I'm off to share in the snippets playground - there is bound to be some mischief as Miss Di is off on teacher training and Parsnip will be home alone.

Fabulous card Lynn! I also have some aperture card blanks from my cross stitch days - I wonder how many of us started off making cards that way?

Have emailed you - lovely lady :)

I also have a number of aperture cards that were for cross stitching. I love what you've done with yours and Marilyn is a super image. Barbxx
