Yumminess at Pile It On

I love being sponsor coordinator for Pile It On, and the Design Team helps me a lot with picking themes & sponsors. This week, for example, our great sponsor Doodle Pantry was coordinated by teamie Elizabeth. She picked the great theme of Oh Yummy! and got us some adorable images to work with. Love my team!

I used the Strawberry Ants set by Doodle Pantry, which has lots of elements and both black & white and pre-colored digis. For this card, I used a sentiment, a line image (I really considered using the pre-colored version of this image, but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to use my Copics!), and one of the digi papers.


I've had these ant buttons in my stash for... well, years, no doubt. I was so excited to receive them, but I've had limited opportunity to use them. I used DMC Fluorescent embroidery floss to sew the buttons directly onto the card base. For the stitched border, I used the template I made for my Chocolate Kisses card.
