Thanks a Bunch.

I recently completed a Queens ATC  swap and my partner Oliva very kindly enclosed some off cuts of design card and this  pretty stamped and coloured  wheelbarrow of flowers. Looking through them I thought how well these three designs went together and decided to make a card using them up. I managed to get 3 of the smallest XCut nestie die "Square Parenthis" out of each one and arranged them in a grid pattern  onto a square of pale green  card stock which I distressed around the edges with my handy T.H. gadget and a  distressed ink pad in Stormy Sky.  I then matted to a blank blue card base. The ribbon came from my stash and the buttons are a 1" cherry flower punch that I cut out in shrink plastic. I coloured using promarkers  to match the flowers in the wheelbarrow and punched holes before shrinking with my heat gun.  As I have used snippets of the card and shrink plastic am entering into Pixies Crafty snippets.

A totally brilliant snippet make Mrs A. I love it! You could have some cough candy to try and get the red off your tongue, but it might make your teeth fall out. It might make you a bit of a tigger too with all that sugar!
