Penny Black - January Challenge

Happy New Year!!
May it be blessed with all things wonderful!

We have a new challenge for you over at Penny Black and more.

Designing for

This month our theme is

" Love and Hearts".

Don't forget you can enter using any brand of rubber or clear stamps, and be sure to check out the great prizes that are up for grabs!

Here is what I made.


Isn't that stamp just adorable!! I haven't had a chance yet to use it, and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. It's from the clear set "Micey Day", which I got from PB Stamps.

I colored it using distress inks. The papers are from Making Memories, card stock are Stampin Up (basic gray and cherry cobbler - love that color!), and Arches watercolor paper.

I embellished with some flourishes which were cut out using the "vines" shapeology die from Whimsy Stamps, a button with some thread and then I applied a little bit of glitter.

The postage sentiment stamps are from Whimsy Stamps as well, "Everyday Mini Postage Stamps", and I used the mini postage stamp die to cut it and the gray mat out.

I'd love to combine my card with the following challenges:

I hope you like my card. Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see their amazing creations!
And don't forget to play along with us this month for a chance at some amazing prizes or to be chosen to be in the spotlight. You can enter up to 3 times.
Good luck everyone!
