Hi Everyone!! I hope everyone had a good day yesterday and a good start to their day today. I am so sorry that I did not visit too many of you yesterday but we had some disappointing news yesterday and my heart was not with crafting or blogging. During the day I did not create anything which is unlike me. Last night I had a hard time sleeping so I decided to get up and try to create something just for fun....not for any design teams or companies...just trying to do something I love to take my mind off things a little. I decided to ink up one of my neglected Penny Black Images, Cherry Jubilee.

I incorporated the Penny Black Sketch 83 and the Crazy 4 challenges challenge to create a birthday card. The image is colored with copics, cut out and popped on dimensionals. The dp is Bella Rose from SU.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Penny Black-Cherry Jubilee
Paper: Bella Rose
Accessories: MS pearls, stitched Gross Grain Ribbon, buttons, swiss dots embossing folder, buttons

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
