Birthday card with Penny Black

Hi Everyone,

Hope that the new year has been treating you well so far? I have definitely been treated well in the crafty world - I was chosen top 3 in the Sparkle and Shine challenge (see post below), and I won some crafty surprise goodies which are currently on their way to me - so yay and let's hope it continues that way ;o) I am hoping that as the year progresses, I will also have more crafty time as such - for now I'm still struggling but I'm trying!

Today's project is a birthday card I made for a special lady - the card has not been delivered yet so that's all I can say for now! :o) Love this Penny Black "Dreamy" stamp - this has been on my wishlist for years and I finally got it at the end of last year. Lots of distress ink blending, some vellum, and - of course - some bling, using sequins this time (and not Wink of Stella LOL). The sentiment is from WPlus9 "Unforgettable". Oh, and let's not forget the Mama Elephant Femme Frames, of course!

Hope you like it!

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday - Anything goes
QKR Stampede - Lots of Layers
Penny Black and more - One for the girls
Seven Hills Crafts - January 2016 Challenge (middle photo colour inspiration)

Have a great day,
