As soon as I bought my first Penny Black stamps I had to participate in the Penny Black Saturday challenge. I created this card for the sketch.

I started by stamping an image from Eat Cake in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut with the largest of the small Classic Oval Nestabilities dies. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Pants: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78   Shirt: Y17, YR15, YR18, R14, R27, R39   Fur: E0000, E41, E42, E43, E44    Blush: R000    Turtle Shell: E81, YG93, E87      Turtle: YG01, YG03, YG67    Grass: YG61, YG63, YG67   Sky: BG0000, BG10, BG11) and adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, that had been cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Oval Nestabilities die.

A 4 7/8″ square of MME Stella & Rose Mabel paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Solar White cardstock.  Melissa Frances white ribbon was adhered to the left hand side and May Arts White Organdy Ribbon was tied over that. Three Recollections flowers were added on top of the bow.

The layers were adhered to a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half and Snow Kaisercraft Pearls were added to the lower right of the card base.

A sentiment from Tiny Wishes was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a 1/2″ wide strip of Solar White cardstock. The right end was cut into a banner edge. A button was added to the left hand side with Honeydew Twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
