Charming Modern Whimsy

The current challenge at The Technique Twist is Modern Whimsy and I thought it would go well with the Butterfly Challenge which is Charmed. I wasn't sure about this technique as it's not really my style and I don't even know if this will qualify but I do like to play along. It was also a good opportunity to use up lots of bits from my die snippets box where I've cut things for other cards and they didn't quite go right so I'm also going to play along at Pixie's Snippets Playground (the first time in ages). The pink mats are only partial squares so I couldn't mat them straight but I quite like them at an angle

  1. Another pretty card!! Thanks for joining us over at TTTC

  2. This is lovely. Having the mats at an angle looks perfect. I often cut the inside of papers when layering up to save on waste. Love the colour too.
    Great idea to save the bits from old earings as charms. Thank you for fluttering by #5. Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

  3. Lovely card Kimbo, love the layers, the colours and patterns are so soft and your image is beautifully coloured, Cathy x
