HM Paper Piercing


This week's HM challenge is Paper Piercing. I colored this image with my Prismacolor pencils some time ago for my SS kids and never made it into a card, so now I got to do double-duty. I did the challenge and did a Thank You card that I have needed to send out. I used my Nesties for the image and the matte behind it. The plaid DP's are both Prestwick from SU. The solid color CS is Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Garden Green. The sentiment was purchased along with the HM stamp and I think worked great with this. I stamped it on Sahara Sand. I paper pieced around the sentiment and the scalloped matte, as well as the corners. My MS border punch was kind enough to "pierce" it's own border for me. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other entries in the challenge. They're always so cute, and if you can, play along. I have several more cards to share with you because I was able to get several cards done this week. Can't wait to show you my Dancing Lambs and my birthday Robot, as well as variations on Upsy Daisy, A N D......I even got a Christmas card done (one of my goals for this year - doing one Christmas card a month.) All this coming up....sounds like TV before a commercial break, doesn't it. Well then, stay tuned. :) Hugs and Happy Friday.

This is too cute, Karen! I love that image. You and I both used the same MS punch, and piercing around the labels...but yours looks so much better than mine! :)

This is such a gorgeous card. Love the way you have kept the colours of the image the same as that of the backing paper, it really does make it stand out. x
