Pixies-snippets-playground-week-134

Another week flown by and another Pixie's Snippes Playground...

Do you have coloured card in your stash that you just dont like and it rarely gets used?  Well I've actually used some on my Snippets card its the rusty colour.  The image is a pre-coloured LOTV one called 'A lick of Paint' but I've changed some of the colours to tone in with my snippets of card....two strips of 'Hessian' embossing, I cut the Hessian ribbon in half as I only had a small piece left so what you see is all I had! Corners and the star are all Stampin Up punches..
We've got a lovely day here in Somerset after the awful thunder, lightening and rain yesterday...just hope it stays fine for the childrens summer holidays...

Love the hessian theme...the two tones was a great idea. The piece of hessian ribbon is lovely and keeps to the masculine feel you have going on here. Great image...I love these toppers!j

Hi Anne

Great use of your snippets!

I've bought that stamp in the LOTV sale - but haven't had chance to ink it up yet.

Hope you had a good weekend.

Gorgeous card Anne. Great idea for using up the coloured card that seems to hang around for ever. I have so many colours that never seem to get used.
