Penny Black - For You

Happy Sunday Everybody,

I am so out of my comfort zone/s here and really not very happy with how this card turned out. However if my blog is to be a record of my cards - it must show the good, the bad and the ugly!!! The card base was a white flower shaped card from DoCrafts and I have sponged it with SU Pumpkin Pie and added faux stitching. The centre of the card was this weeks layout from MOJO Monday Challenge (MOJO136). I have created the pattern paper using the SU Fresh Fillers stamp set and embossed the Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, sewn it all together and add the ribbon and brad before

mounting it on a black nestabilities die cut. I have used three SU punches to mount the sentiment which was from Penny Black Transparent "Tiny Words" set. The cute cat image is also from a Penny Black Transparent set called "Hugs" and has just a hint of colour from copic markers W00 & YR07.

I'll enter this card into the following challenges:-

Mojo Monday - Sketch Challenge MOJO136
Colour Create Challenge #43 - Burnt Orange, Black and Cream
Cupcake Craft Challenge #88 - Don't be Square
Cute Card Thursday - Make your own (pattern paper)
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Shaped Card (Thanks Ei!!)

Thanks for looking - I hope to be back a little later with something prettier!
