A Hole in My bucket!

This theme is this week's Challenge at CC Challenge blog.. A Challenge which was set by our Jenny and you can use whatever the word HOLE inspires you to.. it could be an aperture card, a shaker card, anything that has a hole in it!!!

I decided to use a border punch for the sides and on the black mat cardstock... this creates holes :) and some eyelets to pass the ribbon into. Quite not my usual type of card! No cute images this time! but flowers ;) But all in all, I love the way this card turned out after all! I wasn't that sure at first, as I decided to use grey scale and pink (and a bit of brown as well).. but it created a lovely effect. Again I used quite a few dots around, as you may have noticed I'm loving this style lately. I also found, from most of the comments I get from you,that it may seem that you love them too!

For this card I used:
Pink white and black cardstock
For the main picture: DCWV Black & White Mat Stack
Fabric pink flower
glitter gel pens for dots
white organza and checqued pink ribbon
Fiskars Border punch (for the bottom border)
Create and craft border punch (for the sides)
Rayher Heart Brad
Gold frame and "gem" on ribbon (from stash)
K & Co Brenda Walton Tags and Corners (the upper corners' embellies)

By the way... I added a Heart brad at the bottom left, to hold a samll "Bloom" tag... two more holes in my buck... errr card!!

Anyway I hope you like it, and waiting to see your comments here, and your creations over at Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog, this week as well. Also as from this week, Lauren is putting up a weekly newsletter as well, with our latest news and creations, so why not pop over and sign up (free) for it??

God bless you always dear ones.. and I wish you all a lovely week, full of all the good we can get!

Great card hunny, and wow, what a fab look to your blog - I haven't visited in so long (shakes head), I'm sorry. I'm back now though, ready to annoy once more ;o)
So sorry to hear about your migraine, I do hope it clears quickly.
Much love as always.
