Allsorts No. 412 - I Spy...

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a nice and sunny weekend! And maybe you'll find some time to join us over at Allsorts challenge :) 
We have another fun challenge for you, this week it's "I spy something beginning with a B". 
Lots of possibilities here, and we  have a great prize to give away too!


I went with B for bluish gray birds and blossoms
I used a really old Penny Black stamp (Floral Doves) for my card today, it's been heat embossed on Bristol Vellum card stock and colored with zig clean color brush pens. I thought this image would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary card, so that is what I made. Sentiment and flourish stamp I used along the border are both by Whimsy Stamps (older and probably retired). 
White grosgrain ribbon and some stitching finishes off the card. I also added Wink of Stella glitter to the blossoms, which you can see in the photo below.

This card is available in my Etsy shop, if you're interested.
Also take a look at the Penny Black stamps in my shop, I have just reduced all prices yesterday. All stamps are brand new. Shipping to US only, so sorry, but postage is just too much to ship outside the States.

I am also playing along here:
Crafty Girls Creations -Always Anything Goes
Moving along with the Times - Birds & Feathers  
Paper Shelter Challenge - Use a Sentiment
And that is all for today. 
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope to see you play along at Allsorts this week.
