Speedy's Challenge #28, Paper PieRcing!

Hi Everyone, it's Saturday, and that means time for another challenge From Speedy's The Cat's Friends! This weeks challenge #28, is to use piercing on your card. Please take note that's piercing, not paper piecing, lol...I guess I was speed reading and made a paper pieced card first...so you'll just have to wait to see that one!

I used piercing around the Santa stamp image and down the little faux strap holding the Ho, Ho, Ho!

The main image and both sentiments are from a new Mark's Finest Papers stamp set, Christmas Postage Due. It will be released next week. I lucked out when I found this dp with stamps on it, so I thought it would be great for this set!

I stamped the image onto vanilla and coloured lightly with copics. I also outlined Santa's glasses with a gold atyou spica.

I got the sketch from MTSC98, The card base is cherry cobbler then always artichoke embossed with 2 different folders. The first was the Christmas Countdown, but because I made my card 5.5 x 5.5, it didn't completely fit and because it's a big folder it doesn't fit sideways in the Big Shot! So I used the snowflake EF on the edge.

The aged paper panel was made using a Tim Holtz notebook EF, and I sponged on some TH antique linen & vintage photo!

Please come and join in the challenge, just add some piercing to your project, and upload it to the Mark's Finest Papers Blog. There is a FREE stamp set drawn for every 50 entries. You can use any stamps, but if you use MFP, your name will be entered twice! You can enter as often as you like, this challenge will close on Friday afternoon, November 12th!

Have a Great Weekend!
Laurie
