My Favorite Things Challenge

I finally figured out where to find the weekly sketches for My Favorite Things, and since I really liked this week's sketch I thought I'd play along. Somehow I had a hard time making this card though, for some reason it took me almost 5 days to finally complete it. I actually almost gave up on it.


And that although I used one of my all time favorite stamps!

Anyway, the stamp is by Penny Black, called "Guess What". I colored it with my faber castell polychromos pencils. Papers are from Basic Grey and Bo Bunny (I think). Card stock is from Stampin up and Neenah.

The border in the middle was done using a die from My Favorite Things. Embellished with some ribbon, linen thread, and a button.

I am entering my card to the following challenges:
Thanks for visiting!
