Holey Crafting!! It's Hambo Hoedown Time!

This week's challenge is Paper Piercing!!  I used the digi image that I received FREE for dancing in last week's Hoedown--you can get a free digi from Hambo Stamps every time you play in their weekly challenges, as long as you use one of their images.

This image is called "Dr. Needle" and comes with three sentiments.  I used the sentiment "If I were you, I'd get well soon!", putting the second part of the sentiment on the inside.

I used leftover pieces of patterned paper to color block my card front, rounding the corners. I colored my image with Copics, coloring a second image and popping out the needle.  Some inking for distress and a ribbon finish off my card, except for the challenge requirement.

So I took out my piercing needle and framed my image. I also poked a few holes throughout the sentiment.

Now it's your turn to dance on over to the Hambo Hoedown for your chance to win!!
