Snippets birthday


Hi everyone. My son asked me to make a birthday card for a friend and he wanted a bird on it.
I revamped a design I did a few years ago and luckily it fits a few challenges too.

Chrissie from Less is More is celebrating a very special birthday and the team wants us to use snippets on a card. Happy Birthday Chrissie!

My flowers are diecut from scraps of vellum and the bird and leaves are cut from snippets of cardstock. The scraps went back into my snippets box for another go later!
We'd love you to display our banner

Di from Pixie's Crafty Workshop is the guest at Less is More and she is the queen of the snippets playground, so I'm visiting the playmates there too.

At Siomon Says Stamp Monday the theme is to use no ordinary paper.
I love the look of vellum, so I hope that fits.
