ABC Challenges - Paper Piercing

The challenge this week at ABC Challenges is Holiday Cards with Paper Piercing.  This is a technique I haven't tried before - takes lots of concentration!  Have a look at the Design Team's paper pierced cards and get a last minute Christmas card made with some paper piercing to enter the challenge.

I stamped the Waltzingmouse Stamps image with Festive Berries and inked the Spellbinders 18 label with Hero Arts Soft Sand, the same ink was used to distress the edges of the Cuttlebug snowflake embossed centre panel.

Waltzingmouse Stamps have a sketch challenge this week and I'd like to enter this card.

Thanks for visiting! Ger x
