Jules sunday snippet challenge

It is raining buckets out there, so I have been looking through my scrap box and there is such a lot of paper in there I decide to take Jules from
up on the challenge. I love reading her blog and she is a great inspiration. I would love to name the other lady who gave me the inspiration for these cards but for the life of me I can't remember which blog I saw the tutorial on, so if you see this, thank you very much for showing me a way to use up very small bits of paper. I looked through all my saved blogs but it is not there, so if anyone recognises the technique let me know. It looks as if I'll have to invest in a few more nesties but that won't be any hardship.
I have also been playing around with my new photoshop and I love using it. I am still a beginner but I altered a couple of pictures of our cats and so far I'm pleased with them, but they are not for public vieuwing yet.
So here are my 3 snippet cards

I used strips of backing paper and card, glued them on a piece of card a little bigger than the shape I wanted to cut, when dry I the card cut with different nesties. I love the effect, and it uses up lots of scraps. All the other elements in the cards are made up from small bits of left over card, the flowers took for ever but I have loads now for use on future projects. The ribbon is from the box and the swirls are die cut from left overs as well. Amazing how productive a rainy day can be.
