Pile It On! Challenge - Give Thanks

We have a brand new challenge for you starting today over at Pile It On! and the theme is:

'Give Thanks'

Our sponsor this week is:

I've used some Hero Arts bicycles stamps ('Classic Bike' and 'Bicycles' set) to make a set of thank you notelets (these are 4x4 inches). I stamped the bicycles using Versamarks, then heat embossed then with clear powder...before blending a single colour of Distress Ink over the top, and adding a sentiment (also by Hero Arts) from the 'What a Life' set.

(Colours L-R: Evergreen Bough, Faded Jeans, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint & Dusty Concord)

Here are a couple of close-ups...if you want a better view click the photo for an enlarged imageL

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.
