New Challenge at PIO

This week the Pile it On challenge is being sponsored by Stamping Dragon! You gotta go and check out some of their awesome stamps HERE. They are truly wonderful and I've had such a blast playing with them, that I ended up completing two cards (so far) with them! Be sure to check back here if you want to see the other one in a little while!

The Pile it On Challenge this week is another fun and easy one - Christmas cards with a twist - red, green, and white + something soft! My card below features 'Happy Christmas Jiggy' one of Stamping Dragon's digis! I hope you'll join us for this weeks PIO Challenge!

Edit: The dp comes from Me and My Big Ideas. I hand-tied the miniature bows myself - they are about .5" wide each. The 'roll of wrap' is my first attempt at quilling. It is purposely very loose, so it unfurls when the card is opened.
