Snippets - Card 29

Do you ever challenge yourself to make a card from the snippets that just happen to be on your desk? Here is one I made with the bits and bobs (snippets of course) that were left over from that set of purple cards I made for my friend last month. The DP is actually a flat sheen card with heavily heat embossing on the flowers. It was another of my 25 cent  6 pack of preprinted cards and envelops from the Michael's clearance bins. The card has a very flat sheen except for the embossing.
I simply sliced it in half, added the snippet of velvet rickrack ribbon, the sentiment and the butterfly.                                                  

Here is a little close up of the Stickles on the sentiment mat...and the embossing on the DP...

 No recipe today as this is too easy peasy to list. Off to make up the other was a 6 pack after all!

****************This is card #29 of 50. I have been on a consumables spending freeze until I made 50 cards (Sook Wang tape and heavy weight card stock exempt).***************

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets

Gorgeous card Mo - what really caught my eye most of all is the butterfly sideways on. Not sure if you'd cut down a whole one but it's really effective!

Hugs, Di xx

Haa Haa! I often make Snippet cards from what is lying on my desk. That is called "cannot be bothered to bend down and put it in my Snippets drawer"!!!!
Your card is gorgeous Mo. Love the lilac hints in there.
Incidentally, I have a lickle packet downstairs. I have not opened it yet as I will wait until Wednesday. Thank you in advance. One question. Where can I get some of that tape you used? Fabby!
Thank you so much.
