Penny Black meets Die Cut Dreams

Well hellooooooo, the sun is shining again this morning and I have a kiddie free day, they are off to the zoo with their Grandparents, time for a bit of me pampering I think...........
This is my entry for 2 challenges today, Penny Black Saturday Challenge where this week they want stitching on your card and Die cut Dreams Challenge where they are asking for hearts and flowers, I thought this Penny Black ' Hugs and Kisses ' stamp was perfect as it has both hearts and flowers on it. I have coloured my image as always with my copic markers, am still deciding whether or not to add a bit of glitter, what do you rekon ? maybe some on the parcels and a bit on the hearts in her pocket ?

I have used my trusty sewing machine around the edges of the image and also around the mat for the sentiment, talking of which, the senitment is from Elzybelles, the papers are BG I think but the bottom was cut off so I can't be sure, the image is of course Penny Black, and the ribbon is from my stash.

Hope you all get a lovely sunny day too, please check back tomorrow when i will have another card for you which is this weeks Whiff of Joy Challenge,
Big hugs,
Claire xx
