Challenging Challenge

I kind of struggled with this card today - don't know if it's the weather, the headache trying to come on or what - but here we go!
I've used the Friday Mash-up and the sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  The Mashup! is:
  1. Make a project using "Paper Piercing".  
  2. Or Make a project using the colors "Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red & Early Espresso".  
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with the "Color Combo & Paper Piercing"

The colours are good together, I'm just not happy with the way my coloured ones turned out.  The poor things are a wee bit pilled from the blender pen!  Oh well, texture is good!  I added the paper piercing around the edge of the tag.

Here is a picture of dear little Elliot with his eyes opened and duded out in a scarf and hat knit by an Auntie.

Hope your weekend is turning out well.  I'm going to spend the rest of the afternoon concentrating on not letting this headache take hold!  I will win!!!  Have a good one - and thanks for stopping by!
