Pile It On! Challenge - Make Your Own Embellishment

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we're asking you to:

'Make Your Own Embellishments'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Bugaboo Stamps

 And the fabulous prize is:

I used a Marianne Designs die to make my embellishments...snowflakes! The adorable bear is 'Christmas Teddy - 2 Ornaments' from Bugaboo Stamps...I coloured himusing watercolour pencils, and glittered up the baubles with some Glamour Dust. The papers are from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye, the gingham ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the sparkly brads are by American crafts, the buttons are from the 'Neighbourwood' collection by Helz Cuppleditch, and the twine threaded through them is from th Ribbon Girls.


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.

PS - I have candy on offer at the moment...click here to find out more.
