Penny Black and More - February Challenge

Hello everyone, it's time already for Penny Black and More February challenge. We're making it easy for everyone this month, but added an optional theme for those of you that like to be challenged... "Anything Goes (with the option of Tags)". As usual, we have some wonderful prizes to give away, so hope you'll play along with us!

I heat embossed the cute image from  Penny Black Mimi's Love then used my Zig Clean Color Markers for coloring. The large tag was done using a retired die by Whimsy Stamps, then small tag was done with a die from Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die Set. The paper is from one of the stacks by DCWV. The sentiment is from Penny Black's set Sweet You. Grosgrain ribbon and jute twine was attached to the tags and Wink of Stella Glitter brushed over most of the image.

Close up below....

And then here is a peek inside.

I used Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die Set set again for the layer inside. And I stamped the cute envelope with hearts onto the right bottom corner. This is a stamp from a really old Stampin Up set, I think it's called Greeting Galore,  probably available on Ebay or Etsy.  

Thanks so much for visiting!!
