House Mouse Challenge No. 22 ~ Paper Piercing

Our challenge this week is Paper Piercing.  I’ve not had much experience with this technique…so I was a little lost on the challenge.  I ended up doing  just the traditional corner piercing and some additional piercing here and there on the card.

I love this image…it’s one of the new ones for 2009 ~  It cracks me up, just like little kids ~ dumping their WHOLE jar of pennies into the wishing well.  But, what the heck, if one works ~ why not try a whole jar!!   🙂   The jar is highlighted with Shimmerz, in Angel Wings.

I added a shiney penny for luck to the recipent of this card!  Hopefully, it’s not against the law to use real money.  lol
