CCEE Stampers-Piercing Challenge

Charlene Merrick, the hostess this month for the CCEE Stampers, gave the challenge to make paper piercing the focus of our cards. I'm using a Spellbinders Piercerabilities 5 1/2" fancy scalloped border die. I ran it through the machine and then did the piercing.

My stamp is La Blanche Meadow Stamps. There were two fairly similar stamps in this package I bought at my LSS. I just love them.  My sentiment is from the Inkadinkado Garden Flower set. I really like the font.

I colored with Copics and the paper is PTI white cardstock. The green was a blank card I found in my stash...no idea where it came from. Added a gemstone center to the center of pierced flower and that finishes my card.

Hope you'll come along and join us this week. Piercing is so much fun. CCEE Stampers

That dainty pierced border is a perfect pairing with your floral image. I like the geometric layout of this, it's so clean and fresh looking.

The ornate piercing along the bottom border looks gorgeous and makes such a beautiful accent to those pretty, colorful flowers! The fonts on the sentiment just seem to flow perfectly with those swirls you pierced. This is a lovely thank-you card Brenda!
