PPA104 - Paper Piercing

Wow this weeks PPA104 challenge is to use Paper Piercing as a technique on your project /card. This was a tough one for me because everything I tried just didn't come out like I had invisioned in my head. So I ened up just randomly piercing star patterns around my embossed images.

This is the 2nd Christmas card for this year...and I love how this DSP has a gold shimmer to it. It just screamed christmas card. What do you think?
