Hi, this is my entry in this week's  Less is More  Paper Piercing challenge. It's a birthday card for my 17 year old niece.
 It's my first attempt at paper piercing. I used the back of a mouse pad and a large sewing needle to pierce the holes. I had a few goes and while there is definately room for improvement, this was my most consistently even effort.

Materials used: EK Success punch; Memory Box die; Kaisercraft stamp; cardstock & bling from stash.

Thanks for looking :)
