Pile It On! Challenge - Die Cut Embellishments

We have another fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Die Cut Embellishments'

Our sponsor this month is Dr Digi's House of Stamps:
Prize - 2 digis of the winner's choice!

The image on my card is a Whipper Snapper stamp called 'Honey Bunny'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I used a lovely new die from a JustRite set called 'Stitched Ovals & Vines' that my lovely bloggy buddy Samantha sent to me for my birthday last week for my die cut embellishments...cutting the swirls from snippets of card, and adding them underneath a couple of flowers (from the long since closed Poppicrafts) all held in place using a BasicGrey brad. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.

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.
