A penny black cutie

Can you believe I managed to get two cards done and posted within 2 days?? It's been sooo long since that happened.

I've been playing some more with my new derwent coloursoft pencils, this time I used one of my old Penny Black stamps (Bee happy). I just cannot tell you how much I love these pencils and I now I want to get ALL of them.

I've used the sketch from "The sweet stop" challenge blog, but flipped it.
Papers are from Stampin up. I did some machine stitching with my janome mini on this card.

Since I didn't have any rust colored ribbon, I ended up running a piece of card stock through my paper crimper (which I haven't used for soooo long) to get a little bit of texture. Flowers and scallop border were done using Martha stewart punches, the oval is done with a SU punch. I've added tiny sticky pearls to the flower centers and some stickles glitter to the bee's wings and flower centers on the Designer Paper.

My card also fits these challenges:
Thanks so much for visiting me today. Hope you liked the card. I already have another image colored, so hopefully I'll be able to be back with another card very soon!

Have a great day,
