Creative Belli - Paper Piercing!

Hi there, and happy Wednesday. Wow this week is just flying by! I am all thrown off this week because the kids have had one day off already, and have another day off on Friday. 3 day school week...not too bad for them...lol. Well, today we have a brand new challenge for you at the Creative Belli Blog. This time our challenge is Paper Piercing....notice the "r"....that means poking holes not piecing papers...lol. I always get the 2 confused. Well here is what I came up with. My nephew just turned 2, and we are going to his party this weekend, so I thought I would make a card for him. So...I decided (in the spirit of the Belli) to use a stamp I haven't used in FOREVER! I pulled out this adorable little guy from The Greeting Farm. I stamped him off and colored with markers. Next I layered him onto some mustard colored CS, and PIERCED some holes in that. Then I thought the "2" should be on there somewhere, so I pulled out another stamp set that honestly I haven't use at all since I won it as some blog candy. So...I inked up the "2" and colored in with markers. I layered that on mustard CS and paper PIERCED there as well. I then layered onto some dinosaur paper from my stash, and a white CS base. OH yeah...can't forget about the red twill ribbon.

I then gave the card to my girls to write on the inside for their cousin. Let me just say...that was ADORABLE! My 4 year old copied everything her sister wrote...just in a 4 year old's handwriting. SOOOOOO CUTE!!!!

Ok...now head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and see what the rest of the DT gals have come up with. Then play along! Also...in case you missed it...we are having a DT call at the Creative Belli Challenge too...so be sure to check that out!
