Time for challenge #80 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week it's paper piercing. Not piecing..piercing, so we want to see you pricking your cards or whatever you make this week. We are sponsored by the fabulous Digi Doodle Shop with a $10 voucher for some of her terrific digi images up for grabs.

The image I used is one from Digi Doodle Shop (as are all the design team)and I think it's a lovely image for a boy's card. Coloured of course, with my Promarkers. I have pierced the card all the way around the edges as well as around the image and under the ribbon. The rosette was made with my Tim Holtz die and the papers are from a massive pad (180 sheets) from My Minds Eye called 'Complete Boy'. Ticket sentiment from The Crafty Pad Designs. Buttons and ribbon from stash.

Entering into:
AI FACTORY - Anything goes.
MAKE IT MONDAY - Anything goes.
TUESDAY THROWDOWN - Dimension and texture.
TOP TIP TUESDAY - Masculine card.

CARDS FOR MEN #17 - Anything goes.
PAPER PLAYTIME - Anything goes.
