Less Is More - Paper Piercing

It's very rare for me to do a 'one layer' card, let alone paper piercing.  But, that's what I have done with this card.  The border has been dry embossed as well as pierced (all by hand).  It took a while but I'm quite pleased with the result.  The image was printed directly onto the card and coloured with promarkers.  The sentiment has been stamped and I have added a gem heart.  Finally a few sequin butterflies finish the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

There's a lot of very careful and lovely piercing here, but sadly you have linked it to too many challenges for us at Less is More where we have a maximum of 5 allowed.
Thanks so much and do join us again.
