Penny Black and More - Feburary Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you are having a good weekend so far!

It's the first Sunday of the month, and that means we have a new challenge for you over at

Penny Black and more.

This time we have a Bingo challenge for you...but not just a bingo challenge, it's a color bingo. Hope you can play along with us!

Here is what I made. The color combination I chose from the bingo grid below are

Kraft -Green- Blue

I had a little hard time deciding which one of my Penny Black stamps to use for this challenge, but then thought this cute little puppy would be perfect to use with the colors I chose. He is from the clear set "Critter Party".

The sentiment is from the set Friendship Notables 2 by Whimsy Stamps. I cut it out using the Whimsy Shapeology die Noteables 2.

Papers are from Stampin Up (kraft a.k.a crumb cake and bashful blue), designer paper is from my stash, I believe it's by bo bunny. The image was stamped onto neenah white and then colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. I sponged the edges using bashful blue ink, and then some caramel ink on the white around the puppy.

It's a really simple card, I just added the punched edges (SU scalloped edge punch) to the designer paper edges, and then to finish it off I added the button with some linen thread.

I'd like to combine this with the following challenges:

Thank you so much for visiting today, I hope you will play along with us for a chanceto win one of the several prizes up for grabs. Simply click the logo below to go to the Challenge blog.

Don't forget you don't have to use a Penny Black stamp to play. You may use any company, just not any digital stamps.
