Pile It On! Challenge - Circles and/or Squares

It's time for some more inspiration, and an additional theme for this month's Pile It On! Challenge...where the themes are:


Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps:
Prize - 5 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

I combined the themes to make an Easter treat bag, cutting squares and circles from patterned papers (from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye), and layering them up. The image is called 'Hello World' by Penny Black...I coloured it using watercolour pencils, added a sentiment (from a set by Pollycraft for C C Designs), then cut it out using one of my circle Nesties. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

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.

Oh my goodness! This is such a fabulous bag! I am so impressed with the way you utilized the circle and square shapes. The framing job is perfect and most of all, you are a pattern-combining genius! LOVE the way these patterns play with each other. Your creation is just perfect and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
