My daughter has been making cupcakes. My kitchen looks like an explosion in a cake factory!

Here's a card she commissioned for a friend who likes 'pretty' but not 'cute.' I used a scrap of K and Co paper for the background, and the glittery butterflies were cut from a piece from the 'Mariposa' stack by DCWV which was fluttering in my scraps drawer.

I found these gorgeous glittery stickers at the bottom of my Christmas papers drawer - heaven knows what they were doing there! So I decided to use them for the inside of the card.


Although the stickers weren't snippets, the rest was, so I'm entering Jules's Snippet Challenge. It's so encouraging to know I'm not the only one with a paper snippets overload!!

Thanks for looking, and have a good week!

luv, Mags x

Hello Mags

What a fabulous snippet card, I love it. The design paper and glitery butterflies are stunning. You have reminded me I am sure I've have a piece of this paper somewhere.

I am loving all the butterflies and the gorgeous background papers!!

You got my mouth watering at the thought of all those cupcakes .. .. I didn't consider the mess that might have been made .. .. just the end result and the delicious smell that must have been in the air!! Mmmmmm.....

Thank you for sharing your snippet make in the playground this week.
