Penny Black and More - Midmonth Post

Find the Whimsy Stamp sneak peek blog hop post just below this post!

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

Good morning and thanks so much for stopping by! I have two cards to share today, here is the first one. The second one will be posted around noon EST. 

It's time for our Midmonth reminder at Penny Black and More. Our theme this month is Fall/Autumn colors with a sketch option. Here is what I created this time around I used the beautiful sketch Brenda created for us. 

 

Here is a picture of the sketch that I followed.

 
To make my card I started out with a stickeroo from Penny Black's sheet  Pond-Side Celebration. When I use these stickeroos, I like to stick them onto regular white card stock, then fussy cut out to use on my card. That's what I did here too. 
The beautiful flourish in the bottom right corner is a stamp  from the set Baroque Corners by Flonz Stamps, one of our generous sponsors this month. 
I used a sentiment and die from Whimsy Stamps (Contest Ribbons and Contest Ribbons dies)  .
I simply added some ribbon, and a little brad in the top corner. And then finished off with some sewing.

I'd love to enter this card to the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations Paint -  Inspired by: Autumn Colors

What a good idea to use ribbon for the banners Ellie, never thought of doing that. And clever use of the Baroque corner as well, all fits in perfectly.
