Whiff of Joy Challenge #39/Stampin' for the weekend wk6

I have entered this card in 2 challenges! How fun....
The first is Whiff of Joy Challenge #39 where this is what we had to do piercing. This was something new to me, and honestly I didn't know what it was! =) I had never heard of it before, so I looked at some of the other entries/inspiration cards and I got the gist of it. Piercing is something that I would have never done, or even thought of if it wasn't for this challenge. Thank you for teaching me something new.
The second is Stampin' for the Weekend week 6. For this one, we had to do what we could with the "Strawberries Dipped in Chocolate" theme. Red and Brown were the colors to use. When I first checked out the entries for this challenge they had 68 entries! Geeze these ladies don't fool around.=)
Now on to my card. This is what I have created for both these challenges....

This is my first time using this stamp. It took me longer to do the coloring and piercing than it did to make the whole card. I inked the edges with both red and brown to make it stand out a bit. I used regular card stock for the red and brown, and for the red polka dots and white I used my SU paper. I just got the polka dot paper and was so excited to use it. I used regular flowers and simple brads for the flowers.
Thanks for looking,
