Made it back to the snippet playground

It is a while since I joined in with Di's snippet challenge. I've had some carefully selected snippets waiting for me to do something with for well over a week, but I must have been naughty, because I ended up doing extra work with no time for play! Anyway, I'm joining my playmates again with this little number.
I've got a feeling that the stripy paper is K & Co, but I really don't know the other one. I think it could date back to 1997! The text stamp is from Crafty Individuals and stamped in versamark with cosmic shimmer powders brushed over. The Butterfly (Elusive images) is stamped in Currant Adirondack and layered up. 
 The top layer was heat embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder. What I do is ink up my stamp with versamark, then apply the Adirondack on top of the versamark, then stamp and then put the embossing powder on. After heating it looks like this.
Very sparkly! I wasn't sure if it needed anything else, but decided to leave it as it is in the end. Hope Miss Di is pleased with my behaviour! Well, thanks for looking and I hope you have a great week!

  8. Hi Sally, I'm finally managing a catch up between family visits. Jenna's determined I'm going to see plenty of our little Charlie while he's a baby so keeps coming to stay, lol! It is nice not to miss out though as he's growing so fast.

    I love your snippet card (no-one would know it is snippets) and that dusky mauve is gorgeous. I do love that paper in the background and wouldn't have thought it was that old a design. It looks very up to date to me and is lovely. Love that EI butterfly too. Just the right amount of sparkle!

    Hugs
