The Paper Nest Dolls

I am working with a digi image called Pumpkin Topiary from Scribbles Designs. I colored it with Ink Tense watercolor pencils. It is a Halloween digi, but I turned it into something I can use for Thanksgiving since Halloween is over. It has a couple of bats on it that I changed.

Here is the card I made:

For my bling I used Rhinestones, Stickles, Wink of Stella glitter pens, and clear Glitter Embossing Powder. The EP is on the tag. I covered the whole tag with it. I turned the bats on the original image into leaves that I then covered with green glitter glue-it's like stickles, but a different brand. I also used white Shimmer Sheets to cut out my die cut doily. Shimmer sheets is a very strong, thick paper. Even using my vagabond I had to run it through about 12 times to get it to cut through. Then I had to take a craft knife to cut the places that didn't go all the way through. It has a great look though-shiny and slick. The DP is from the Fall and Halloween 8 1/2 X 11 paper pack by DCWV. The tag was made with an old tag making kit that I have had for years. I attached a piece of burlap ribbon using the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. I had to staple each side seperately because of the thickness of the ribbon. The sentiment stamp is an old one by KC Andrews. Her shop has been closed for some time, but you might be able to find it somewhere. It comes in a set with a lot of scriptures and is very nice.

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge. I would love to see your bling! You have until the 16th to enter.
