Pile It On for the New Year!

I'm so pleased to be ringing in the New Year with Pile It On's first challenge of 2012! Our Anything Goes theme is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, so I know you'll want to join us!

Boy, we have a talented bunch at Pile It On, made even better with the addition of our fabulous new teammates. Our whole team is participating this week, and even your favorite volunteer (er, me) joined in with this altered box (originally packaging for delicious cheese).

Here are my challenges for this project:
Pile It On #01: Anything Goes
Colour Create Challenge #86: Blue, Silver & White + Embossing
Paper Pretties #186: Ring in the New Year
Top Tip Challenge #66: Anything Goes

Stamps: Pretty Pendants & matching SVG files by SP & Company, frame by Fiskars, sentiment by Hero Arts, Freeform font (2s slightly modified)
Paper: Recollections (two versions of silver paper & glitter cardstock), Core'dinations
Tools: Zip Dry & Tacky glues, red double-sided tape, Marvy heat tool, stamp block, Cricut & SCAL
Embellishments: Offray ribbons, silver elastic, stash brads, Stampendous & Recollections embossing powders, Elmer's glitter pen, tissue paper flowers, Tattered Angels glimmer mist (Granite), Copic marker for edging (Royal Blue)
