Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

"It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC11)! Becca Feeken is our challenge hostess this week. She is challenging us to paper piercing. Paper piercing is the art of piercing holes through the cardstock for decoration. Paper piercing has evolved so much in the past couple of years with the invention of some highly detailed piercing templates. There are all kinds of piercing ideas to use. Whether it is just a pierced frame or border, some pierced corner accents, a few pierced dots here and there, or you go out out with ornate piercing template patterns, we would love to see what you create."
I wish I had some of those beautiful templates (hey, wait, I will soon! :)) so, to keep it simple, I pierced the holes on each of the scallops.
We LOVE when you play along with our challenges, so check out all the details at the blog: Flourishes Newsletter.

The new Sweet Violets set is SO beautiful! The image is gorgeous, but the sentiments in this set are fantastic! You will have a hard time choosing just one. AND they are in fabulous fonts too!! I decided to go with "you inspire me" because my teammates at Flourishes inspire me constantly! They are amazing artists and lovely people! Thanks ladies!!
Check out what they created for today:
