Snippets & Sparkle

I loved the simple sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch this week but I also wanted to go over & join the fun in the Snippet Playground. With this card I've managed to do both, and as it's a birthday card I'll enter it into the challenge over at CASology, too, where the cue card is "Birthday".

The snippet of paper has been in my stash for ages, I'm not sure of the maker. You can't see it in the photo but I added a touch of Wink of Stella sparkle to some of the stripes. The chipboard flowers have also been in my stash for years; I painted them with a couple of coats of gesso then once that had dried, coloured them with Mulberry Promarker. I found some Crackle Accents and decided to see what that looked like, so here's a close-up:

To be honest the flowers didn't turn out as I'd imagined at all but I really quite like them - I think they look a bit weird in the photo but trust me, they look much better in real life!

The greeting by Clearly Besotted was stamped in Memento Lulu Lavender, and the Happy Birthday was given the Wink of Stella treatment, too.
