Penny Black and More - midmonth reminder

Click HERE for my word play saturday - May challenge.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a card to share today, that I made using images from a Penny Black Stickeroo Sheet. These sheets are so perfect for quick cards, and the coloring on them is just so professionally done. 

I made this for  the midmonth reminder of our challenge at Penny Black and More. There are still about 2 weeks left to enter into our challenge, the theme is "Sew Special". It's actually two challenges in one, either create a card for someone special, or do some sewing on your card, or you can do both. 

 The beautiful flower stickeroo was adhered onto some white card stock, then onto saffron card stock. After adhering it onto the designer paper, I did some sewing, since our challenge at Penny Black at More this month is "Sew Special". And of course since I love sewing on cards, as long as my sewing machine behaves.

The designer paper is from Stampin up, old and retired, I thought the blue matched the swirls from the image perfectly. 
The butterfly on the left is also part of the sheet, I cut it out, adhered it onto card stock, and added it with a glue dot. 
To finish it off, I added some glitter, a white ribbon and tucked the sentiment under. The sentiment is from a set by Whimsy Stamps.

Here is a closeup.

I would love to enter this card to the following challenges:

A gorgeous card Ellie. A pretty colour palette and oh so neat stitching. I love PB Stickeroos and you have reminded me to use some of mine before they get completely forgotten.
