It was a snap to go all the way around the border the Pretty in Pink mat with my white gel pen with my rectangular template I cut, I didn't have to move it once, love it! Then I used my circle template and pierced the three circles in different sizes at random. I slid my 1 3/8 " punch into the medium circle so the Regal Rose would show through, so I could spotlight my "birthday girl" greeting made from the Hip Hop and Just So Hippy sets. I chose a circle Nestabilitie slightly smaller than the largest pierced circle for my giraffe image, which I colored with Copics R20 and E13 to match the ribbon(it's called The Robert Stanley Collection in the floral department at Hobby Lobby, on sale 1.50 for 10 yards!) Since I had such warm pink and brown tones on this card, I used my Skin White E00 Copic for the shadow rather than choosing a grey or blue shade. Finally, I used my half inch circle punch and page pebbles to accent the butterfly and the "hey" greeting from Just So Hippy.
That's it! you like?? I HEART my new piercing templates!!! more to come!
