A Card for Di from Pixies Snippet Playground

This card is made specially for Di who has runs the Pixie Snippets Playground 
as between 27 January 2019 and 10 February 2019 there special event! 
Di's friend Darnell from across the pond has initiated a surprise Blog Hop to thank Di for the SEVEN years she has managed the Snippets Playground where we go to show off our snippets makes, enjoy bonfires, have hot toddies, jump rope, play on the Playground equipment, trade beads, horse-around in the tree house, ride bikes, play with Parsnip (and now Dudley), and generally have an amazing and fun time!

So Di, Thank you for all you do and the inspiration you give us you really are appreciated.

This card uses snippets of paper I had left over after making a diary.
I simply cut the paper to 1cm strips and mounted onto a scrap piece of white card.
I then run it though my Todo in a embossing folder to make sure its all stuck down properly.
Then I used my spellbinder little machine to cut the heart shape out.
Finally I stamped the sentiment on a another piece of scrap and stuck it all together.

This card is for the following challenges

Thanks for taking the time to look at my creations

This is a beautiful card! I love the strips of pink pattern papers and I love you embossed on top of it. Gives such great texture. That heart die cut is awesome and I love how you stamped your sentiment on it. Such an elegant card to honor Di! Hugs, Brenda

You've created a pretty CAS design, Nicky! It's a great idea to make strips from leftover snippet pp and apply them this way! That cut-out heart to encase the sentiment is genius! Thank you so much for joining in the Hop to thank our Miss Di! Hugs, Darnell

Oh that's lovely! And although you've used paper snippets, you've given me an idea for using some washi tape that's feeling very unloved right now.
