If you can swing it . . .
This week's High Hopes challenge is hosted by the amazingly talented, Crissy. She wants us to use paper piercing on our cards. I decided to use this little cutie, Swinging Shannon, for my card along with some of the papers from the Grow paper kit (My Mind's Eye). I distressed the edges using scissors and pierced the holes around my sentiment before adding the stitching using embroidery floss. I also added a little piercing on the corners of the image. And I used one of my crocheted flowers that I bought on etsy. Love those!
Well, I'm going to make this quick. Hope you have a Happy Easter!
