Penny Black: Purple, Cream and Brown Challenge

Oh my! Have I ever missed stamping and cardmaking. This summer has been filled with gardening, the animals and sewing and I've barely made a single card. Now that the garden is closing down I can finally stamp again.

So this morning I sat staring at my stamps, inkpads and embellishments trying to remember how to make a card. Hee hee hee. I really did struggle but finally decided to check out the PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE for this week. This weeks challenge is a color challenge to create a card using BROWN, CREAM and PURPLE and, of course, any Penny Black stamp of your choosing.

I love this color combination and reached for this Penny Black stamp titled "Friendly Surprise." I colored it with copic markers and used some pretty Stampin' Up! designer paper for the background, some lace and ribbon, and of course some flowers and stickles glitter glue. The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up!

Oh it feels good to make cards again. I'm sure in addition to a lot of sewing projects I'm working on, I'll be posting a lot of new stamped cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
