Penny Black and More - January Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone and thanks for stopping by! Hope the new year started off well for you all!

We have a new challenge for you at Penny Black and More. Our theme for January is

Love and Romance.

http://www.bloggersentral.com/2012/11/pinterest-pin-it-button-on-image-hover.html I recently purchased this cute stamp, and thought it would work well for a little romantic card if I combine it with the right sentiment. 


 The image has been stamped onto copic xpress blend it card, and colored using copic markers. I added glitter to the moon. The top sentiment is from Flonzcraft stamps, who is also one of our sponsors this month. The bottom sentiment is from a set by Whimsy Stamps. White edges were all sponged with distress ink. To finish off the card I did some sewing, added a layered diecut heart shape, and some gingham ribbon.

Would love to play along in a few other challenges too:

 A Creative Romance - Something New (new to me stamp)
Brown Sugar – Use Ribbon or Twine
Crafty Hands Challenge Blog - Anything Goes 
C.R.A.F.T. -  Anything Goes 

And that is all for today. If you'd like to play along with us this month, simply click the logo below. Don't forget you don't have to use a Penny Black stamp. Any make rubber or clear stamp works. We have several fabulous sponsors again, so plenty of chances to win! And don't forget about the chance at being invited to be a guest designer for a future challenge. 


Have a fabulous day!!
