Just Bee-cuzzz

Good Sunday morning!
Janet issued the challenge of paper piercing this week on The Corrosive Challenge Blog I love to paper pierce! I have a couple of different tools that I use; the first is a metal template from Lasting Impressions and the second is Tim Holtz's piercing ruler. I used the ruler for this card; I love that it is clear so I can visualize my project better. It also has a very fine grid that makes lining things up very easy.
I used Mercy's sketch; I really thought it was a fun one and I plan to use it again! I also used a new digi image from Pink Cat Studio; I just love the whimsey of Melissa's characters.... Isn't this little Lily just darling? Don't you just love her beehive hairdo? LOL It's so perfect for a little bee!
Image: Pink Cat Studio Digi
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Lemon Tart and Dark Chocolate, Heidi Grace DP
Embellie: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter (wings), Doodlebug Glitter (brown)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Sakura Black Glaze Pen, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Tim Holtz Piercing Ruler, Foam Tape
I borrowed a trick from my friend Larissa, and dotted Lily's eyes with a black glaze pen. I also used glitter liberally; Lily really sparkles! Actually glitter is the only embellie I used on this card...I'm not really sure where I would put ribbon or brads.... Have you ever done that? Made a card without ribbon, brads, flowers, etc.? I feel like it "works" for this card....
I hope to try this layout again with butterfly Lily and ladybug Lily. If only there were more time in the day!
I hope you have time to stop by and check out the other DT's cards today; check my sidebar for links to their blogs. Maybe you can even play along!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday!

Hello Angela, your card is really cute. I like the image and i´m also never use a digital image too. But it´s great ! I like the DP and how you colored Lilly. I always use glitter for wings, i think it´s always fits very well.

This sketch fits the image perfectly! And it definitely doesn't need any added embellishments. It's great the way it is! I am awful at paper piercing. I love the oomph it can give to a card. You do it wonderfully!
