Using My Snippets!

     Happy Tuesday morning, friends.  Today I have a card for you that uses a mess of leftovers from my desk.  It is funny how all of a sudden you realize that you have been working in the same color family for a bit!  LOL!  Here is a card I would like to take over to Pixie's Snippets Playground for Challenge # 233.  

     This card came about as I needed a good luck send off  for a sweet lady at work.  She helps with the student program we are involved with at work.  She is just not sure she will be back next year, so I did not want to miss the op to tell her she is appreciated.

     The background was created with strips of designer papers on an ivory card base.  My fish is a digi image from "color pages for mom", found on Pinterest. It was colored with Copic markers and I added sparkle with a stardust pen.  My sentiment is nameless, but I stamped with Distress Ink on an ivory punched, scalloped oval and popped up after doing some piercing.  There are ivory flowers with SU! centers, which I also inked, and Dew Drops as bubbles coming from my fish.  I added some pretty cotton lace that was given to me ages ago by my friend Carol, to add a little bit of different texture.

     That is it for me!  Off to work early, and home again for more fun!  We have been having a small run of nice, cooler weather, and it is quite enjoyable!

Super card Mary Anne! I love every element and the dew drops as bubbles from the fish are such a clever idea! A super card.

Mary Anne, this is so pretty and a great use of snippets too! Love the mix of all the pattern paper in the background and that cute little fish. Your friend will love it.

One fishy, two fishy..........oh no - just one fishy! lol Those patterned papers look so cool the way you used them, and I could have sworn I left a comment on this card previously?!
