Use up those snippets...

The Sunday challenge from Debs on CMLI is to 'use up snippets' which I'm sure we all have loads of. There are quite a few challenges around with a similar theme so it must be common!

I was inspired by the bunch of flowers my husband got me for my birthday last week and are still going strong.

I've punched the flowers from scraps and inked the edges then added candy coloured with Promarkers to match. A few gems, ribbon and silver gel pen complete the card.

I'll also enter this into:
Less is More - ribbon
Always with a heart - Sunday snippet challenge
Unstampabelles - celebration (no stamp allowed)
Karen's doodles - bingo! (flowers, die cuts, gems)


  1. Woo Hoo - such a pretty card and with just enough space left for your chosen sentiment


  2. Go Nicola! This is great. Perfect way to use up those snippets. I'm still wracking my brains... Not easy with just the one brain cell I can tell you.

  8. Hi Alexeya

    What a beautiful card .. .. I love all of those little flowers and your doodling with your silver pen is brilliant!!

    I would have spoilt the card if I had done that!!!

    Hope you had a lovely birthday last week .. I hope your flowers last much, much longer.

    Thank you for playing along in my little snippet challenge. It is lovely to see another new face.

    Love Jules xx
