Pile It On Challenge - A Special Occasion

This week's Pile It On! Challenge theme is:

'A Special Occasion'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

Prize - $25 Gift Certificate!

My special occasion is a 100th birthday! This card is for a friend of my Nan's, who celebrates her 100th birthday on the same day as my Nan turns 95! I stamped my Hero Arts 'Garden Weeds' stamp using the watercolour technique and Distress Inks, then blended 'Old Paper' over the top to create an aged look...inking around the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' ink. The sentiment is from the 'Big Sentiments' set by Paul Pascual, and I used my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet to cut the numbers.


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.
