Penny Black and More - January Challenge

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by!

It's the first Sunday of the Month (and the year!), and that means it's time for a brand new challenge for you over at Penny Black and More!


Our theme for January is
"Love is in the air".

Hope you'll join us, as always we have several fantastic prizes up for grabs, from our fabulous sponsors:
 Penny Black, Stampalot, Crimson Cloud, Classy Crafts, Crafty Ribbons
Don't forget that you may use any make of rubber or clear stamps. Can't wait to see what you create!


Below is my creation. I used the super adorable stamp "Captivated" by Penny Black. It's been way too long since I used it last, and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.



I used pencils for coloring. The papers are from a pack by Lost and Found I think.
I thought the sentiment "so happy together" would be perfect for this cute froggie couple. It's from the set "Key to my heart" from Whimsy Stamps.
It's been embellished with a button and twine. The border was done using a die by MFT.

I'd love to combine a few other challenges here:

And that is all from me for today. Thanks again for visiting and enjoy your day!
