It has been a busy week for me so I have been looking forward to the weekend since about Tuesday morning J It will be a busy weekend but loads of fun things going on starting with my birthday card club class this evening.

This week at the Friday Mashup our Challenge was to explore the world of paper piercing and if we wish we could add the colour combo aspect as well. There are some fabulous “paper piercers” out there who are happy to share their ideas with us up and comers, which was a huge help this week. When I settled on the design I wished to go with I thought I would create an elegant look with this card.

My Challenge:
  1. Make a project using "Paper Piercing".
  2. Or Make a project using the colors "Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red & Early Espresso".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with the "Color Combo & Paper Piercing".

My Card:
Tiny Tips:
When attempting to create an elegant vintage look I tend to use my cutter kit, in particular the distressing blade. Also adding the dark sponging around your focal point helps to make it pop!
Thanks for stoppin’ by!
