A landscape of snippets

I am so pleased how this card turned out and it is all from snippets. I used a memory box die to cut the trees and houses from two separate papers and then layered them over one another, cutting the houses away from the top layer and adding some paper for the windows and doors. The sentiment is from PTI and it is framed by a spellbinder die cut from another snippet.
I'd like to skip into the playground with this for Pixies crafty snippets playground week #66, even though Miss Di has been very naughty this week playing an awful April fool on us, see here for a laugh if you missed it, and yes it caught me out until the OH said "is it an April fool?"
I'd also like to enter the card into Papertake Weekly challenge which is "Anything goes" and Charisma Cardz challenge - Happy Birthday.

Terrific card and such a fabby idea to double die cut the houses and trees then snip some away.

Ahem, I hope you kept what you snipped off - might come in handy some day :))

Hugs, Di xx (and another apology!)

what a great idea to layer up the dies, and chop off the houses (for future snippets makes??)
