Midway Reminder for Penny Black and More

Did you play along in yet in this month's Penny Black and More challenge? There is still a little time to share a creation with us. The theme is very easy - simply use an embossing folder, stencil or mask and a rubber or clear stamp, and you are good to go. We didn't have too many entries yet this month, which means the chances of winning one of the fabulous prizes are even better, so why not join us!
Other than following the theme, our only other rule is that it has to be hand stamped (digis are not allowed). You may use any stamp company. You can even enter up to 3 times for more chances to win. 

Here is what I made for my reminder post.
This time I used a hearts embossing folder (cuttlebug). I thought it was perfect to use with this cute stamp from one of Penny Black's  newest sets from the Love and Friendship collection. 

I used a simple sketch and embellished with some pink twine. Papers are from my stash. They are pretty old so I have no idea who the makers are. 
I used copics on xpress blending card for coloring.

Here is a close up.
