Just Dandy

Melissa's Inspiring Card
Got off work early today so was able to finish my card for PTI MIM to make a paper scraps pie chart.  I don't have a lot of printed paper scraps, seeing as how most of my printed paper is still whole sheets!  However, my cardstock
scraps are overflowing, so I used some of them.  Maybe if I make 100 or so of these cards I'll be able to see a dent in my scraps--LOL!  Seriously, this technique is really a lot of fun & I do want to try it with a variety of die cut shapes.  For this card I used a Penny Black balloon die which I embellished with a sequin & pearls. I don't have a triangle die, so just hand cut them. The sentiment is from PTI's Flower Fusion 
#8 & is stamped in PTI Classic Kraft.  I popped up the panel for dimension & added a couple more sequins. I'm also entering the challenges at Colour Me, & Pixies Snippets Playground.  I really appreciate your stopping by.
Edited to add: Also entering the new challenge at Dies R Us.

Brilliant Greta! Really clever use of snippets. Err, I can send you some patterned ones if you like - although must admit it's plain card that's overflowing the snippets folder here!!

Hugs, Di xx
