A Stamping Sister of mine (Hi Teresa!) is celebrating her 7th wedding anniversary this weekend, so I wanted to make a special card for her using this gorgegous Penny Black stamp. Penny Black creates some great quality stamps.
I thought the BasicGrey/Pheobe designer paper coordinated perfectly with the stamp, so I pulled colors from the paper and used my aquapainter to color the image. I used Eucalyptus Stickles on the stems and Petal Pink Liquid Pearls in the center of the two flowers.
The two notches holding the zigzag velvet ribbon (yummy!) in place was done with my 1/4" Circle Punch. I just flipped the punch upside down and punch a half circle. Worked like a charm.
The second panel (the one with the ribbon on it) is up on one layer of dimensionals. The stamped image panel is up on two layers of dimensionals.
Thanks for looking.

I'm the lucky friend who received this card in last night's mail. I loved it! But now I'm embarrased to give my husband the one I made for him for our anniversary. It's lame compared to this one! ha-ha Regina, you'll always be my inspiration to get better and better and more creative with my cards. Love ya girlfriend!
