Pile It On! #25

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge Blog we are being asked to make something 'creative' for Week #25 with cardstock!  You can fold it, tear it, color it, bake it ... do anything -- the sky's the limit!

I made this absolutely scrumptious Victorian hat on a hat stand!  The hat stand is actually 'the card' ... it opens and you can write your message inside!  I was inspired by the Week #14 Winner, Tracy Clark, from The Shabby Tea Room's challenge last week - 'Summer Fun'. 

Tons of deliciousness on this design including flowers from Prima, handmade trinket pins made with items from my stash and 'Pink Bubblegum' Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop!   

This week's sponsor at PIO! is The Paper Temptress!  Patricia, the owner of Paper Temptress, supplied all the Design Team Members with a generous pack of assorted cardstock in a variety of colors, textures and patterns and some fabulous ribbons too!  We were asked to create three separate designs besides our weekly DT submission, so please check my additional posts to see some more inspiration using these fabulous products!  For this project, I used CAPPUCINO, PINK ICE and MONTEREY SAND cardstock.

This was such a totally fun challenge to design with.  I cannot wait to see what you all come up with ... hop on over to the PIO! Challenge Blog to be inspired and get your creative juices flowing and then get on over to your craft space and get creating :)

Me again, About Inlinkz. I had the same thing happen to me on a blog. I had to go back and it was fine. I hope it works for you the next time. I'd really like this darling hat showing as a thumbnail.
