Pixies Snippets Playground week 170....

I've missed a couple of Pixies Snippets challenges  but managed to find enough snippets to use with this SU Young Vermillion stamp image that has beenin my box for ages...
The 'mesh' corners are from Tim Holts Mixed media dies...I also used the 'waste' as a stencil for the background which seemed to work well and also used an old Stamp in the Hand.stamp called 'field of sky' and added the little 'dots..
Foiliage is bits from a SU Wilson die Grand Vinery die....

Just noticed my cards not striaght....sorry

Hopefully the weather will improve a little bit for Easter as its still quite chilly...

Good afternoon, blooming freezing with lots of snow on the hills we see out of the kitchen windows. I do wish it would get just a little warmer for the Easter Break.
Love, love, love your beautiful card, brilliant for a "man card". Change of colours and it's perfect for a lady as well.

Totally love that background Anne. Such a great idea to use the die for making your corners, and using it as a stencil. Beautifully coloured bird and love how you've framed him to bring in focus. Loll xx
