Pile It On! Challenge - Get In Shape!

The theme of this week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'Get In Shape!'
(In other words...use at least three different shapes on your project)

We are taking part in a very special prize giveaway this week...courtesy of Rachelle's Writing Spot...you can see the details on Pile It On!

I've used an image from the Penny Black 'Hugs' set...although I did add the butterfly, and papers from the 'Ooh La La (for Her)' collection by My Mind's Eye. I used two of the new Cuttlebug folders I got for my birthday this week on the plain papers...'Kassie's Brocade' and 'Flower Fantasy'...then sanded over the raised areas to highlight the detail. I distressed all of the edges and added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is by Whiff of Joy, and the flowers are a mixture of Prima and Poppicrafts. I used my plain and scalloped oval, plain circle and blossom Nesties to cut out the image, sentiment and mats.


So here are the challenges that I've Piled On!:
Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the Pile It On! DT.
