Pile It On! Challenge - Let's Get Outdoors

This week at Pile It On! our challenge is:

'Let's Get Outdoors'

We are sponsored for this challenge by the fabulous:


From Simon Says Stamp - a $15 voucher to spend in their store!

I'm trying to summon back the lovely weather we had at the end of May with my card...and have used a cute House Mouse stamp called 'In a Nutshell'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, adding some sparkle to the water with some Stickles. The papers are from the 'Hippity Hoppity' pad by We R Memory Keepers...I doodled a border around the edges with a black gel pen, and added a sentiment from a set by Simon Says Stamp called 'Sending Sunshine'.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
