Penny Black @ All Sorts Challenge

Hello and happy thursday!! Hope you are enjoying your day wherever you are.
It's beautiful here plus I got to make this card last night, and I am so excited to share it today!

I don't normally apply for Design Teams, but this time I just had to because Penny Black is my all time favorite Stamp Company. Ever since I first saw them I was hooked! Penny Black at All Sorts Challenge blog is looking to add one or two designers to their team. I would sooooo love to be on the team!! Here are the details on how to apply.

The theme this month at PB@All sorts is Glitter and Glitz. One of my favorite things to use!

I decided to use the stamp"Watelily skiing". It's been stamped with memento tuxedo black ink on couture 80lb card stock. I colored it with my derwent coloursoft pencils and used blending stumps and baby oil for blending. The butterfly was parcially popped up with a dimensional for a 3D look, but it is hard to tell in the picture.

I used some pretty papers from stampin up. To make is all sparkly and glittery I added stickles glitter to all of the white flowers on the designer paper. I also added stickles to the small pink punched out flowers as well as the water lily and butterfly.

Embellished with some primas, tiny paper flowers, sticky pearls, ribbon and flourishes. Then I did some sewing with my Janome Mini to finish it all off. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

I am really happy how this card turned out, hopefully the ladies at PB at All Sorts like it too. Wish me luck!!

My card fits a few other challenges too:
That's all from me for today. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Have a great day!
