Penny Black and More - March Challenge

Good morning, happy Sunday and thanks so much for visiting!
Are you ready for a new challenge at Penny Black and More? We have a super fun but easy theme this  month, I hope you'll come join us - Feature a Creature is our theme. Several wonderful prizes to give away from our generous sponsors. You don't have to use a Penny Black stamp, any company goes but it has to be a clear or rubber stamp, no digis.

This cute stamp is from the new release and was just waiting to get inked up too. I colored it with copic markers on xpress it blending card. Designer papers are from my stash, I love the diagonal stripes with the little polka dots. Sentiment is from the set Snippets. I tucked some red card stock under the image to bring some more color to the bottom portion of my card. Embellished with a little prima flower and a brad and did some machine sewing.

Both stamps sets are available in my Etsy shop for US shipping.

And the card will be listed in my Etsy shop Sunday morning my time.

  1. Wonderful card Ellie - love that image, it's a real cutie, and you have coloured it beautifully.

  2. Pretty colours and very eye catching design Ellie and you know I always admire your stitching. I find I can only get my machine to produce zig zag patterns on the reverse which is fin with one piece f paper but almost impossible to achieve if joining two as you often do - any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Hope you have a good Sunday.
