Polka Doodles Meets Feeling Sketchy with Snippets

The challenge at Polka Doodles this week is Lots of Layers with Pink & Red. My card certainly has lots of layers. On top of the circular card blank, I've added a circle of red card. I then punched a lot of circles from snippets from other projects which fits in with the Snippets challenge at Pixie's Crafty Playground. I've stuck them randomly over another circle of light card then run it through the Cuttlebug. The folder I've used was part of a prize I won on the Cuttlebug Spot and was sent from Netherlands by Jannie. I love how it really changes the look of the circles and makes them merge together as you can see from the pictures below

The Hello sentiment is from the My Friend set by Stampin Up and the Friend is from Fabulous Phrases. The butterfly is from a Joy Craft die and the flowers are from my stash. I've followed the sketch at Feeling Sketchy for the layout
