Harvest Hoe Down Challenge

We are having a 'Harvest Hoedown" at The Sisterhood of Crafters
so if you ever wanted to hoedown, now is your!!

The theme was chosen by our 'Sistah' Dar and the design team certainly had fun with it!

One of the things I love about being on The Sisterhood team
is, as long as we stick with the theme
we can use any products we want, making it so fun to create
with some rather neglected things from my stash.
Only thing that is hard, is which 'thing' to choose to work with.

I went with a very 'intense' die (as I like to call them)
from Cottage Cutz.
The reason I say 'intense' is that this image I used has 36 die cut pieces,
even the little candle wicks!

The die is called 'Autumn Centerpiece'.
A few times a year Cottage Cutz has half off sales,
and let me tell you, I jump right in and stock up on some pretty neat dies!

I am the 'snippets' queen when it came to this card,
as all those little die cuts were from scrap pieces of papers.
I sat on the floor and Freckles and I (my crafting kitty...she crafts if I want her to  or not)
cut all the little 36 pieces out!

The entire centerpiece was adhered to a Spellbinders die cut background.
Once done, I felt it still needed 'something',
so I added a few sequins!

So, head on over to The Sisterhood and see what my Sistahs'
has to inspire 'YOU" with to join our challenge!

Entering the following challenges:
Crafting From The Heart .... ATG
Ooh La La .... ATG
Come and Get It .... Die Cuts
