My first Pile It On card

Good morning and happy Monday! I know most people do not associate the words "happy" and "monday" together, but I do! Its the begining of another week with new challenge ! (and some better tv) Our weekends are so boring... I am sure I will have a different outlook next week when my son starts school! Well, over the weekend I was checking out some of the great entries on the paperblooms challenge blog and noticed alot of you use this pile it on challenge blog So I HAD to check it out! How fun is this! This week, pile it on challenges us to use watercoloring and at least one more challenge. I decided to combine the following challenges:
  1. Truly Scrumptious - sketch + add beads - I dont have any beads but loved the sketch
  2. 365 Cards - add dimention - the front tree is popped up.
  3. Paper Take Weekly - choose your own color combo, which I choose Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper white, Soft suede
  4. and finally Pile it on except I did not like my butterfly after I watercolored it and tossed it in the trash. I changed my mind and went with the tree. I intended on watercoloring, but got side tracked. Story of my life ...

Here are the details:

Stamps: Walk in the Park - May SOM from Clear Dollar Stamps, Teeny Tiny Wishes (su)

Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Cottage Wall dsp (su)

Ink: Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence & Old Olive (su)

Accessories: Clear Rhinestone brads (su), Dimentionals, Sponging, Word Window

Thanks for stopping by and for your thoughts and comments, they really do make my day!
