TSMONDAY, Piercing!

Hello, thanks to everyone who commented on my cards during the Totally Stampalicious Blog Hop! I enjoy reading your comments and appreciate every one! Congratulations to the winners!

This is my card for this weeks Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge! This weeks challenge is to use some paper pieRcing!

I used the new Best Buds Brats, and coloured them with copics.

The card base is brocade blue with a layer of barely banana. It's not easy to see, but I stamped the banana piece with matching ink & the linen BG stamp, then sponged the edges.

The center piece is dp from 2bugsinarug called Lazy Summer.

The frogs were made with an EK punch. They are wild wasabi, edges sponged and googly eyes added! That's where my piercing comes in, I wanted to do something other than faux stitching! So I used a circle shaped plastic canvas as a guide to make the hopping pierced marks!

I finished it off with some buttons and some bakers twine!

Please join us in our challenge, and upload your creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog! You never know you could win something & all the Guest Designers are chosen from challenge participants!

I'm also entering this is the Catch The Bug Challenge, Baby Steps, make a card or project for a child /baby!

Have a Great Day!
