4 Crafty Chicks #428 - Holiday Treats

Happy Thursday!

It's time once again for a new challenge over at the Hen House 
with the 4 Crafty Chicks!

I'm your hostess this week.

Lots of holidays are underway all over the globe and many to come in the next two months.  What is a holiday, no matter what it is, without some holiday treats?  That's what the Twist is with this week's challenge ---

Thanksgiving in the U.S. is coming up in two short weeks and so I decided to make my card for it.  Tradition calls for Pumpkin or Pecan pie.  Quite frankly, my family's preference is my easy peasy chocolate pie.  

I was perusing Pinterest to help my mojo and found a cute idea from Stampin' with Tami and gave it a whirl.  I just used a plain and scallop circle dies for my pie.  The top circle I embossed with the Tim Holtz 3D basketweave emboss folder.  I sponged the edges with Versafine ink, Sepia.  I bumped the pie up with dimensional tape on top a silver circle.  

Next I used the Catherine Pooler stencil, Split Chevron, and sponged a background using Twilight and Stone Blue.  I stamped the sentiment (Reverse Confetti) in Icing on the Cake brown.  I had some left over background made from alcohol ink so I punched some leaves out of it.  I added them with a leftover acorn to adhorn my pie.

Now go visit the rest of the Chicks' and check out their projects.  Come play along and show us some sa-weet (or salty) Holiday Treats!
