Headed to the Playground!

     Happy, chilly Sunday morning!  I have a card I would like to share today, that uses lots of snippets from cleaning up my desktop.  Oh the things you can find when you tackle that job!

      I found a card blank of Bazzill yellow, and an embossed panel that used a Sizzix tree embossing folder.  I also found a strip of gold metallic, and a piece of a holiday plaid.  The sentiment tag is a salvage from one of last years cards, that we received.  I could not wait to try out a new Darice die called Basket.  I knew I had a tiny poinsettia die, from Poppy Stamps, and that I could fill it with some scraps .  Yay!  I added MS branch punches as my greenery, and a few amber gems for flower centers, along with ice crystals to my greenery.

Note:  The basket die comes with some spring looking flowers to fill it with, but I had to make it Christmas.

     I would like to enter this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground #203, where we can use up all of our bits.

     I hope you like what I have come up with!
