Penny Black Thanks a Bunch

Hello friends, thanks so much for visiting.  Christmas is officially 12 sleeps - it is approaching so fast - are you ready - we are nearly but there is always that last little something that sneaks in and catches you off guard - or is that just me!?! Wink:Wink! 

My card today has been created using a Penny Black Inc. image from the Stitched Flowers clear stamp set - such a pretty floral stamp.  I have stamped the image onto white card stock and coloured it using Chameleon Art Products/Pens - I love the way these pens give such a great variation of colour in the one pen - so quick and easy!

The image has been cut/embossed using a Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B and the  Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform. The Die has been used a s a stencil and sponged inside the cutting edges using Imagine Memento Inks in Summer Sky,  Dandelion and Rockmelon.  The sentiment has been stamped using Imagine Memento Inks in Rhubarb Stalk.

The coloured image has been popped up onto patterned paper cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken, using Scrapbook  Adhesives BY 3L Crafty Foam Tape.  The card front has been popped up onto the pre-cut card base, also using Crafty Foam Tape.

White card stock has been cut/embossed using the long trinket from the Shapeabilities Isadora Trinkets Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken.  This has been sponged using  Imagine Memento Inks in Summer Sky,  Dandelion and Rockmelon and a yellow button adhered to the centre.  The Long Trinket has been glued to the top of the image layer.  A double narrow sheer bow has been glued to the bottom left corner of the image layer.
