Daring Cardmakers - Hole in One challenge

The challenge this week over at the Daring Cardmakers Blog is called 'Hole in One'. That's right, Lythan challenged us to make cards with at least one hole in it!
Well, I certainly did not stop at one...I made a card with a whole bunch of holes in it :o)
I stamped the circle background from Background Basics: Retro (Papertrey Ink) and then took my eyelet setter and puched out random holes.
Then I backed it with this yummy Marigold Morning (retired Stampin' Up! color). I used my new Threading Waters border punch (Fiskers) too, just to emphasize the holes!!
Finally, I added a bit of brown cardstock and a sentiment from Giga Guide Lines (Papertrey Ink) - a great size!!
Thanks for dropping in for a visit today! Your comments are always appreciated!!

Very elegant card and perfect for a masculine recipient, too. The peek-a-boo polka dots are an awesome touch!!
