LOTV snippets card

I've used a LOTV die cut square on this card, so no colouring involved... so you'd think it would've been a quick one, but for some reason it's been hanging around my craft room half finished for days!



The card itself isn't very impressive, but I'm pleased because I've managed to mix snippets of different brands of papers (no idea what make!), something I usually struggle to do, I've used up one of the LOTV die cut squares which I never seem to get round to using, used a swirl die that I've only used once or twice before, and some flowers that I've got a box full of - it never seems to get any less full!  The photos have an odd pink tinge for some reason, and the cardstock is actually dark brown although it looks black in the pic.

I'm entering my card for Jules Craft Snippets Challenge, my second entry for this week.

I still feel tired from yesterday - must be getting old!  And I've managed to end up sunburnt, even though it didn't seem all that hot.  I had a halter neck top on so I've got strap marks around my neck - very attractive I'm sure!

Wow Lisa .. .. this is a really beautiful snippet make!!!

This is the thing I like best about Snippet Sunday .. .. I can mix and match anything with anything . .. .. and I don't have to remember where they came from or what they are called LOL!!!

I cannot think why you have had this hanging around for days .. .. it is lovely.

Thank you for joining in with your snippets for a second time this week.

I hope your sunburn isn't the colour of your card!!!

Love Jules xx

I've never been quite sure and buying the already coloured squares, as it would then be finding papers to match !!, love what you have done and i'm glad i'm not the only one who doesn't use swirls very often either !!, Luv Sam x

This is a lovely card Lisa. Love the image, great colours and considering all those papers are different brands, they all match so perfectly. Sorry to hear about the sunburn! Hugs, Claire x

Debs said...

Gorgeous card Lisa - the DP's match perfectly with the image - I too have some LOTV die cut squares that I haven't yet got round to using - might just have to have a play later :-)
Enjoy the rest of the evening.

Love this Lisa; you've done a great job with the papers and I love the layout (might 'borrow' it if you don't mind). Think I'm going to get some of those images as my colouring is so rubbish and it would save me a bit of stress!! xx
