Spots and Scraps!

Had a bit of a mooch about in the 'box of leftovers' recently and found several pieces of spotty card.

Strangely enough they were all roughly the same size - so I tidied the edges of four pieces and used them as a background.

I used up a pile of white snippets too so am feeling quite smug with myself!

Sorry the pic is not the best - no idea why.

A few odds and ends of ribbon, some pearls and a butterfly punch and these have to rate among the quickest cards on record - (hope they don't look like it!) - all done and dusted in less than half an hour.

Looking at the darker pink one am now not sure if the ribbon might have been better placed straight rather than on an angle... but too late now!

Snippets Playground for me I think - if I can get an internet connection long enough to link it up this week - (am away on tour)!

Thanks for having a look today. Have a great day whatever you're doing.x

Oh these are wonderful Viv...and all in less than half an hour!! take a bow.....can you tell I a teeny weeny bit would take me half an hour more!! to think of the design. What a clever idea to punch out the butterfly and see the background through. I will have to CASE you at some point on these for sure (compliment)...when I want a quick card...and you have done all the thinking!!! :) Enjoy your tour.....take care...xx

I've got many strips of white paper approximately the size of those used here and I love your design idea on how to use these! Simple and so decorative with the little punched out butterflies!
