No Time To Stamp Challenge




I created this card for Sharon's challenge which was to use paper piercing on a card. I have had this paper piercing template for some time and thought I would pull it out and challenge myself today. While making it I had intended to emboss the wording in seafoam white but accidently picked up the holographic instead and if you think I was about to redo the paper piercing you're DEAD wrong, it adds a little sparkle:)! The stamp I used is one of my favorites and is by Great Impressions, an oldie but perfect for spring cards. "Easter Blessing "is a stamp given to me by a dear friend but believed to have come from I Brake For Stamps. Paper is from Lasting Impressions I used both the melon bold striped and checkered then mounted it on white linen stock so that the piercing would pop more. I colored the flowers in with watercolor pencils.

I had lots of fun taking on this challenge and plan to keep my template out for awhile.

Wow- it turned out great! Smart thinking not to re-do your work! Isn't that always the way- something goes wrong at the end? Actually I think it looks fantastic just the way it is!

Beautiful Easter card. I love the paper piercing, and I don't blame you one bit for not starting over. I too would have salvaged that beauty. The closeup really shows it off, and I don't see a thing wrong with the holographic EP. :) Kelly
