paper piercing challenge from Lily-boos

this is another lovely image from Lily-Boo's
our challenge this month for the design team was to create a card using paper piercing, I decided to do some stiching a task made a little easier by using the Christmas tree from the Christmas cheer cart which already has the stiching on! I enjoyed making the paper chains althought a little fiddly, will be making some with my children in a larger size to decorate.
