Whiskers and Wings for Penny Black and More

Good morning everyone!
It's hard to believe it is already August?? Summer is sure flying by, only a couple more weeks for us until school starts again! It's been so hot over here this summer, I am ready for some cooler weather, but I don't know how soon it's going to happen...
Since it's a new month, it is also time for a new challenge over at Penny Black and More. A really fun one again this month...

Whiskers and/or Wings

Here is what I made.



I used a super cute stamp from the clear PB set "Critter Party". It's been stamped on soft sky card stock and colored using my faber castell polychromos pencils.

The grass that kitty is sitting on is from a clear set by one of our sponsors this month, Flonz stamps, who kindly let the Design Team choose a few of their stamps/sets. I have to say I think the border stamp set that I chose, works really well with the Penny Black critters, especially the smaller ones from clear sets.

I have used this sketch before, I don't remember where I found it back then, it was a challenge blog I am sure. The designer paper strips are from my stash, and I punched a scallop border using black card stock. Embellished with some twine,  and a punched out butterfly with some sticky pearls.
The sentiment is from a set by Whimsy Stamps.  I will update here as soon as I figure out from which set.

 I hope you'll join us this month, we have some fabulous prizes again this month from Penny Black, Stampalot, Joanna Sheen, Crafts U Love, Flonz Craft, so be sure to play along for a chance to win!!!

Good morning Ellie,

Hi Ellie,

This is such a cute card! I love your stitching and your coloring and how you have combined your stamps. It's been way too hot here as well and I can't wait for the cooler fall weather. I'm using my new speech recognition software, so now my comments are full of capital letters where they should be. Ha ha
