Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday and Penny Black and More Reminder

Happy Wednesday! I am sharing a super quick and simple card today, made for the Penny Black and More July challenge reminder and it also fits this month's "Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday" challenge so this card serves as a reminder for that challenge as well. (Simply scroll down to enter the Crafty Wednesday challenge, but do click here if you would like to join in at Penny Black and More challenge).

At Penny Black and More our theme this month is "Things with Wings". Several prizes to be won over there, hopefully you can find some time to join us if you haven't already!

As mentioned my card was super quick to make. I simply stamped the Penny Black image "Butterfly Suite" onto Neenah 80lb card stock using  Memento Tuxedo ink. Then I used some old solid circle stamps (The Shape of Things and Little Shapes - both long retired by Stampin Up) to highlight the butterflies and Hydrangea of the stamp using Distress Inks Tumbled Glass and Mustard Seed (this one stamped off twice before inking over the butterflies). I finished off the card by tying some gingham ribbon before adhering to a light blue card base. Oh, and the sentiment is from Penny Black's sentiment set Sprinkles and Smiles.

I found some fun challenges to join:
