Remember Paper Piercing?

I was thinking about paper piercing the other day, went onto Pinterest, found a pattern that I thought was sweet to make a card with, and ...
I haven't seen paper piercing in a while, and I had done the paper piercing along the edges of the card, but I wanted to try my hand at a swirly pattern...even if it's not that "IN"...it's "IN" to me:)!!  I copied the pattern, by AngelOlenka (she has a bunch!!...thank you so much Angel!!) cut it down, taped to my cardstock panel of the same size and pierced away...I skipped piercing the flower and it's leaves!!  What fun!!  I had recently got my Tim Holtz needle...only click it ONE level protruding the needle...clicking it two levels makes the needle too big/long and holes too big...just letting you know:)!!  Used some layered flowers and a sentiment from Paper Smooches...gray papers stampin up...LOVING GRAY:)!!  Here's a close up...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
