I recently pulled out a little bag of Lawn Fawn and MFT plaid, striped and polka dot snippets and made a herringbone panel for a background. Once it was finished, I die-cut the center of it with a Lil Inker Stitched rectangle die, which left a narrow outer frame that I used on the card below. For this card I chose a stamped image I've had for years that someone sent me, and I have no clue who makes it, so if you know, please leave a comment and I'll give credit where it's due. EDIT: Janice M let me know in a comment that this image was by Elzybells - a company no longer in business - thanks Janice - I thought you sent me this one but wasn't sure) I colored the image with fluorescent and pastel Copics, adding some yellow glaze pen on the chick to look like feathers. The sentiment is from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes.
I will share this card with the Make My Monday #119 challenge - to make your own background paper

For my 2nd card, I used the outer frame that was left from the die-cut panel in the above card. I also made a smaller piece of herringbone with the smaller strips and a snippet of white card. I die-cut this piece into a stitched tag, cutting a larger tag with a snippet of matching dsp to mat the main one. I added my last piece of lavender gingham ribbon which was just long enough to make a little bow, along with a sentiment made up of a stitched die-cut circle, an I.O. hugs die (cut and layered 3 times) and a few little gemstones and assorted stamps to make up the sentiment.
I will share this with Pixie's Snippets Playground #375 - must use snippets
