Celebrate Any Holiday with Pile It On

     It's time to "Celebrate Any Holiday," the theme for the newest challenge at Pile It On this fortnight.  We are sponsored by Doodle Pantry, one of my favorite places to find images, sentiments, and papers, all in the same set.  Having once served on the DT over there, I was so delighted to get this image out of my stash and use it.  These are the pumpkins from the "Pumpkin Birdie" set, and the "Happy Fall Y'all" sentiment is also from that same set.


I used colors I found at Outlawz Color Challenge.

 

     This is a pre-colored image, die cut with a framing die by Spellbinders and matted with another framing die a size larger.  The larger frame is colored with chalks which I applied using a cotton ball.  The diagonal strips are washi tape.  The bottom sentiment is computer printed and punched.  I added wooden leaves colored with ProMarkers, a hand tied bow which was 'dyed' with a ProMarker, and a punched, layered flower also colored with ProMarkers.  The sparkly gold mesh was a leftover scrap found in my stash.

     Challenges:
Lacy Sunshine (1st column)
Melonheadz Friends (top row)

     I hope we'll see you playing with us this challenge.  Just decide on a holiday, any holiday, and make a project to celebrate it.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
