This card was done primarily for the sketch challenge, however I used colours from the CC challenge and I also did the Technique challenge again just because I loved it.
Big boo boo, I pierced my design and then coloured it with my Polychromos pencils and then decided to use my long oval dies to cut it out, oops, what then happened was all the piercing disappeared because it was squashed flat so had to re-pierce the whole thing, just as well I find it very therapeutic. lol
Hope you like it.

Eek! Did you piercing really disappear! I'm a little surprised because I'm pretty sure mine didn't, but maybe your machine puts more pressure on. And I had considered it and was prepared to take the risk, just glad that it didn't happen. Amazing colouring and shading on your leaves, and the background embossing picks up on them so well. I've seen some lovely cards with the sketch, I'll have to try to fit it in with one of today's challenges or the IC tomorrow. Thanks for playing along again :D, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

So very lovely! The piercing is done to perfection with tiny holes closely and evenly placed, maybe having to do them twice made them twice as nice!!! Love the pool party paired with pistachio pudding, and the shot of black adds a nice visual punch. Awesome creation, TFS!
