Playing at Phindy's at Sugar Creek Hollow

Welcome to Sugar Creek Hollow and another Sensational Saturday.  This week our challenge for you is to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card using the technique of PAPER PIERCING.  You don't need any special tools to prick holes in your paper because a sewing needle will do the trick.  If you want to use a pattern rather than just pricking holes in a line or circle and don't have any, there are quite a number of freebies out there (just Google "Free Paper Piercing Templates").  There are also lots of tutorials available.

This week we have a wonderful sponsor, PHINDY'S PLACE, who will provide our random winner with a $10 gift certificate to her store.  The random winner will also receive a badge to display on her blog.

Each member of the Design Team has used an image from Phindy's Place on the card that she has created for your inspiration. If you want to see the details of the cards, just click on the designer's name and you will be taken to her blog.

For my card, I have used Phindy's "Tea Bird", isn't she just the cutest???  I just loved the peaches, pinks and rose colors in this paper by Pink Paislee and had to use it. My coloring was done with my few copics and the paper piercing with my templates from Gina K Designs and Stampin' Up. This is one of my favorite techniques, I hope it is one of yours and if you've never tried it before, join our challenge this week. We will be looking for you.

I am also going to enter my card at Phindy's where their challenge 63 is to use buttons this week.
Hope you are off to a wonderful start on your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
