Penny Black and More - February Challenge

A  new month already...I was supposed to be back with the linky parties, but unfortunately they are still on hold and I am not sure when I'll bring them back. While I do love hosting them and visiting all the blogs, commenting does takes up so much time, and I just don't feel like I have the time right now.

But luckily I am still able to make some cards and today I am sharing a card made for the new Penny Black and More challenge. This month we're wanting to see you use your favorite stamp. I have lots of favorite Penny Black stamps, so I decided to go with one of my first Penny Black stamps called Guess What. 

I heat embossed the image before coloring with Zig Clean Color brush pens on Winsor & Newton watercolor marker paper. The patterned paper is from my stash, probably My Minds Eye. I used a butterfly border die from Whimsy stamps and added some Wink of Stella glitter to make it sparkle. A button and some twine finishes off the card. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set "All Abloom", also heat embossed.

Closeup below...

You can find this card in my Etsy shop, along with the stamps I used today (brand new), if you're interested. (US shipping) 

Also playing along here:

I hope you'll come join us at Penny Black and More this month. As always we have some great prizes to give away, this month from Penny Black, Crafts U Love, Sizzix and Stamp Addicts - lots of chances to win!

 

And that would be all for today.

Thanks so much for visiting!!
