Penny Black and More - February Midmonth reminder

 Did you get a chance yet to play along in this month's Penny Black and More challenge? Still a little time to join in if you haven't already and don't forget you can enter up to 3 times. As always we have several great prizes to give away. Our theme is easy, just use your favorite stamp.

As I said before, it's really hard for me to choose Penny Black favorites because there are so many that I love! For my first DT card for the February challenge I used one of the very first PB stamps I purchased, and for the mid-month post I am using the most recent Penny Black stamp I purchased (Sweet Talk). This stamp is really old but it is new to me, I  found the wood mount version on ebay. Penny Black re-released this stamp in one of their clear sets at a smaller scale. (Sorry but I don't know the name of the clear set). 

Image has been heat embossed on Bristol Vellum cardstock and Zig clean color brush pens have been used for coloring. Isn't the bunny adorable!!!
The sentiment is from a set by Crafter's Companion, also heat embossed. Patterned paper is from my stash. The card has been kept pretty CAS, but I decided to add a little yellow butterfly with some rhinestones to bring in a little more color.
 (Silly me - I forgot to color parts of the flowers but that will be taken care of. Didn't notice until writing up this post. )

It's really hard to tell, but I used Wink of Stella on all the roses and butterfly. They are really sparkly in real life.
If you're interested in purchasing this card, you can find it in my Etsy shop along with some others and some stamps as well. (US shipping)
