Sugar Creek Hollow vintage paper piercing challenge

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.

I chose to do just a bit of piercing under the main image.  The majority of
my paper piercing is on my embellishments.  I pierced my flower and my butterfly.

Head on over to the Sugar Creek Hollow blog to enter your vintage style paper pierced project.

Wow, is this ever fabulous. The piercing on the butterfly and flower gives them such added dimension. Love the laces and the flourishes.
