PWC274 Paper Piercing

It's Wednesday, hump day, or as I prefer new challenge day at Paper Pretties.  If you're like me and prefer the challenge then you need to know that PWC274 is "Paper Piercing". That is p-i-e-r-c-i-n-g which means poking holes that form a design or outline.  If you're like me you have trouble discerning piercing from piecing.  If you look closely you'll notice that my sweet hippo is wearing a paper pieced dress.  Oh, well, no will take off points for paper piecing but you do need to get some piercing on there too. 

My card uses the totally adorable "Fairy Special" stamp set which has three oh so very cute animal fairies and four birthday sentiments to adorn your cards or projects.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Fairy Special"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; pink marker used to ink sentiment
paper - Bazzill "Buttercream", "Blossom" and "Glow" card stock; Simple Stories Vintage Bliss
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinder's "circles" and "Lacey Circles" dies; Stampin' Up "Modern Label"  and border punch; stickles

Here's the challenges:
Paper Pretties PWC274 - Paper Piercing
Creative Card Crew #44 - Things with Wings
Paper Playtime #18 - Use Three Different Papers (the hippo is pieced with a third paper)
Dream Valley #64 - For a Child
Craft Your Passion #178 - Do You Believe In Fairies? (yes I do! doesn't everyone)

  3. An adorable card! I love that layout and yes, I do sometimes have trouble with piercing vs. piecing. I guess my brain wants to go faster than it should sometimes. LOL. Thanks for joining us for our Fairy challenge this week at Craft Your Passion. Hope to see you again next week!

  4. Oh my word, this card made me laugh out loud. She is such an adorable fairy and your card design really plays that up. Love the papers, the scallops, the picing and the piercing. Glad you believe in fairies, too. Thanks for joining our Do You Believe in Fairies challenge at Craft Your Passion. I hope we see you again soon. I enjoyed my visit today.
