Penny Black and More - July Challenge

Today is the start of a new theme at Penny Black and More challenge where our theme for July is In the Garden and hopefully you'll come join us for a chance to win one of our prizes. We have Penny Black and Blade Rubber Craft prizes to give away this time.

To make my card today, I used a mix of cute and floral stamps from Penny Black along with one of their newer sentiment sets.

The older hedgehog stamp - Asking the Flowers -  has been heat embossed then colored using distress inks.The flowers -Dancing Daisies - were inked up using distress inks and markers and stamped with the help of my stamp platform. Mine is no longer available but there are several available on Amazon

I used Tim Holtz's Rays stencil to add some sunshine to the card and inked the edges. To add some interest to the design I used an old stamp from Stampin Up along the bottom edge. The sentiment is from the set Blooming Sentiments, which has become one of my favorites to use with floral stamps.
