  25. Paper piercing has got to be one of my most favorite things to do. It so dresses up a CAS card yet doesn't add any paper layers. LOVE how you add the multiple circles in the corner and your colorful butterflies are just DELIGHTFUL! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  26. I can't believe you made this before you went to work! You're so quick but so creative too. Love the pierced circles.
