Hello Stampers ~ I know what you are thinking, what do holes have to do with card making.  Check out my card below to find out!

Well I got another thing crossed off my list yesterday.  I even started cleaning up my craft room which is long overdue!  I will be finishing it up today so I can spend some time creating!  I am hoping to make a video since the kids will be gone for a while today.  If not I will see about doing one on Monday.  Wish me luck!

I saw a sketch at The Share the Joy Challenge which I knew would be perfect to use some of my designer series paper that may be a pattern I am not fond of.  Here is the sketch.

This sketch is a great way to use a paper that you are not fond of.  I have several papers that are just not my favorite.  Usually if that happens I like the other side so I can use the one side and not have to worry about it.  Every once in a while though there is a sheet that I just do not care for either side.  When that happens I am always looking for a way to use it where I can hide it.  Here is the way I used the above sketch to hide some of this paper.

I chose a black card base and attached a piece of Playful Palette ds paper. I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and using my circle punches to punch some holes in the card stock.  I then used my large polka dot embossing folder to emboss the panel.  A piece of Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon was added down the side.  I attached this over top the ds paper with sticky tape.  My sentiment was stamped on a piece of Cucumber Crush card stock.  I used the Banner Triple punch to flag the end of the strip.  To apply it to my card, I added some glue dots to the straight end and inserted it into the punched circle and stuck it down.  Here is my completed creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  What plans do you have for today?  I hope it includes some time to have fun!  Have a Sensational Sunday and what ds paper would you hide using holes?
