Penny Black Challenge and Cute Card Thursday

Hello all!

Hope you're having a great weekend so far. We've been enjoying the beautiful weather we had today, and got a couple more things for the school start on monday. I can't believe summer break is over. Where does time go??!! I know I'll have to start working on halloween treat bags for school SOON if I want to get them done in time.


Today's card is for this week's Penny Black saturday challenge and they want to see some stitching on our projects. I love my janome sew mini, but don't use it enough. Maybe I'll start again, because I love the look and feel of sewing on cards. The card also fits this week's cute card thursday challenge which is Lazy Days.

I used one of my new Penny Black stamps "Asking the flowers". Image was colored with copics and a little bit of glitter was added to the flower centers. Papers are all by Stampin Up.

Thank you so much for coming by today, hope you like the card.


Recipe:
Stamps: Penny Black, Stampin Up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, basic gray, copics
Paper: Whisper White, basic gray, cottage wall designer paper (all SU)
Accessories: ribbon, stickles glitter, janome mini sewing machine, word window punch, ticket corner punch, photo corner punch
