oh boy, i know how time consuming paper piercing can be without one of those tools that make several holes at once.  for xmas i did an elaborate piercing with an embroidery needle and cardstock.  my fingers were so sore!  but the look is lovely.  your card came out quite nice.

For Paper piercing, I use a push pin. (you know, kinda like a thumb tack).  Below is a Praying girl that I pierced and embroidered. Everyone that I've sent one to, has loved her.  Smiley

I don't know if this will help you or not, but I used to do a lot of visual art projects that involved sewing paper.  To keep the needles from hurting my fingers, I made myself a couple of cloth thimbles.  An easy way to do this is to cut the hem off of an old pair of jeans.  On either side there is a spot where the fabric is folded over four times (where the side seam meets the bottom hem), so it's extra thick.  Place this spot over the ball of your finger, then cut the strip to fit your finger and sew closed.  Voila!  An easy thimble that won't fall off or get in your way.

I place a piece of craft foam or an old mouse pad under the paper and the attern when I am piercing the card.  I use a regular embroidery needle and embroidery floss.  I used verigated green for the dress.
