Pilin' on the Rainbow

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Quote/Lyric/Saying. The only really rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge.

To begin the new year, the next month will be our first annual Charity Challenge! Thirty dollars will be gifted to the charity of choice of one lucky winner (randomly chosen from challenges #124 & #125.)

I used a quote from Dolly Parton (digi stamp by Paper Makeup) to create a shaker card.

Happy Year of the Fire Rooster

Wow, it's 2017here's to another crafty year. The Chinese New Year doesn't start until January 28, so I couldn't resist making a Year of the Fire Rooster card for my BFF!

I created the rooster background in SCAL & cut the layers on my Silhouette Cameo.
