Bling and Holes

I needed an Anniversary card this week for some friends and thought that a combination of a couple of challenges would be ideal for it - CASual Friday's "bling" and Annabelle Stamps "paper piercing".

I started with an oval nestie and stamped a cake image onto it in pink, over stamped a swag design in darker pink and added bling to each swag.  Next I drew a swirl design onto grey card and pierced it before rubbing out my pencil lines.  I mounted it onto pink card stock so that it showed through the pierced holes and finished with a sentiment on a tiny lable.




  1. Beautiful card Tara I a sure your friends will love it


  2. Bling is great and I like your paper piercing swirls. Perfect combo for your challenges. Zx
