Less is more - paper piercing

Hi there!

Another fun challenge at  less is more this week.

This is my first attempt, another idea *pending* :)






Here's how I did my sentiment:

- I typed the word 'happy'
- Flipped it digitally to get a mirror image
- Did the piercing on the printed side
- Then turned it around and added the 'birthday' part... voilá!

The backside actually becomes the front side.

Thanks for looking!

Stunning Hannelie. I love how the button with the red twine pulls the whole design together. Well done.

Simply elegant and stunning! This stamp reminds me of my fav Tilth flower die. The wee bit of red twine totally finishes of this card.

...as for the paper piercing, please see Comment 1 and 2 above :)
