Happy Birthday Penny Black Saturday :-)

I made this card for the Penny Black Challenge who are celebrating their 1st Birthday following the fabby sketch by Michelle O on the Spoonfull Of Sugar Challenge :-)
I just realised that I missed being able to enter the DT blog candies as we had to have them linked by 8am ! I actually made this yesterday and didn't upload it ,,,, :-(

I made this card using tyher gorgeous PB Bubble of Joy stamp. I coloured it with copics and 3D'd him :-)

All the patterned papers are from Basic Grey Porcelain book and I also used brown/pink coredinations, I love this stuff !!

The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of the card I used for the base using a stamp from a Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set

All the edges of all the card and papers were inked with antique linen distress ink. The flowers are prima ones and the velvet brad is Laura Ashley. I also used a few Robins Nest Dew Drops

Thanks for looking. I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
