PIO - Midway

This month there's only one challenge at Pile It On and it's running all month so you can still play along.  The theme is Pile On the Embellishments.  How Fun!!!!  I love to add bling to my cards so I put a couple on it.  This time I used some gold glitter on my stars. That's unusual for me, I've got this idiotic fear of getting glitter in my eye so even though I like the way it looks I don't use it often.  There's twine and die cuts and borders on this one too.  You can use whatever embellishments you have, flowers, ribbons, charms, brads and eyelets.  Go for it, now your chance to pile it on.  Oh, and don't forget for this challenge you have to enter your card into at least one more challenge.  The more the merrier.  So go get inky and make a card to enter into our challenge.  The DT loves to see what you've created and you can see what they've been up to at the Pile It On challenge blog, same place you'll find the linky thingy.
