Penny Black and More - May Midmonth Inspiration

Happy Sunday! I didn't think I was able to create a card for this month's Penny Black and More midmonth reminder, but the kids had their friends over yesterday morning, so I was able to do some coloring and created this cute CAS card. Our theme this month is simply Anything Goes, so no reason not to play along. The only restriction we have that no digis are to be used.

The stamps are from the clear set "Hello Friend" by Penny Black. 
 The image has been stamped onto copic xpress blending card and then colored using copic markers. Designer papers are from a 6x6 paper pack which I bought a couple years ago. Sorry I don't remember which company it's from. The sentiment is part of the clear set. I used Whimsy Stamps Notables 7 die to cut it out. Embellished with a few extra butterflies (MS punch), some sticky pearls and glitter.

Here is another view.

I'd love to play along here:

  7. So adorable! Love all the flowers, butterflies, and sparkle.

    FYI -- I really don't know what the silk pants I featured on my last Fashion Over Fifty post are called. I just call them Pajama Pants because they look and feel like silk pajamas…but yes, they are quite a step up from what Walmart shoppers wear. LOL!

  8. ooh so bright and cheery, love the paper you put with it.
