Pile It On! Challenge - Large Sentiments

It's the first Sunday of the month, so that means that we have a fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...the theme is:

'Large Sentiments'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Pickled Potpourri:

Please see Pile It On! Challenge post for details of the prize.

I used a Memory Box die for my large sentiment...it's called 'Grand Merry Christmas'...and I cut it from plain white card. I made a background using Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, Peacock Feathers & Cracked Pistachio) on watercolour paper, then stamped some snowflakes (from the 'Detailed Snowflakes' set by Stampendous) in Versamark Ink, and heat embossed them using 'Sparkling Snow' embossing powder by WOW. I scuffed up the edges a little using my distressing tool, then matted it all on to some teal card.


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.
