Well, yes, this is NOT no line piercing. It started out to be & when I turned it over there were way too many piercing holes. So many holes I couldn't even tell what it was! Mistake #1 - I didn't choose the right stamp. So it's a wannabe.
I decided to stitch the holes I pierced. Mistake #2 - I started to color the other balloons (there are 6 balloons on the stamp). I didn't use the right white paper & my coloring bled & looked horrible. Mistake #3 - I tried to use some alcohol to bleed out the color on the main balloom. It didn't work. So I cut out the stitched balloon, bugged a piece of navy & popped it up. And you guessed it... Mistake #4 - I stamped the sentiment on one of the clouds. So I stamped it again & used a 1-1/4" circle punch.
I know this doesn't qualify for the TLC but I'm putting it there anyway. Send the police!! At least it's pierced....
Thanks for stopping by.

I spite of all the trials you went through to get here I love that stitched balloon and would have had no clue it was from a cluster of them set of stamps you know what I mean? I think the stitching on it is way cool :)

Well goodness, you retrieved your mistakes big time with this - the stitched balloon looks simply fantastic. And since you stamped on the back and pierced - that's the challenge done! And with the cloudy embossed background, this is a great guy card.
