House Mouse challenge - Paper piercing

Have you all seen the new Bo Bunny papers - they are so gorgeous I was reluctant to put an image on this card at all. Some of them are double sided and this one is called 'Beau Jardin Bleu. I eventually overcame my reluctance and added just a small image which I feel works perfectly well.

The House Mouse challenge this week is is paper piercing. I pierced around the edge of
the card and also around the edge of the image which I coloured with watercolours.
Rather than use my piercing grid I used an Avec stencil with both embossing and piercing templates on it.



Materials
Cire-dinations cardstock
Bo Bunny papers - 'Beau Jardin Bleu'
Image - House Mouse - coloured with watercolours
Petaloo flowers
Martha Stewart punch - inside
Ribbon, brads and pears from stash
