Penny Black You are the Bestest Birthday Card

Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for my daughter's 16th birthday using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called 'You are the bestest':

This is also my card for the following Challenges (click on the underlined links to take you to the challenge):
  • Penny Black Saturday Challenge - July - Anything Goes with the optional theme of Food and/or Drink
  • Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 589 - Anything Goes
  • Splitcoaststampers - Ways to Use It - WT744 - Cute Critters
I stamped the image using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink onto Ranger Watercolour cardstock and coloured it using Derwent Inktense pencils and Faber-Castell watercolour pencils.  I added some glitter to all the flowers plus the cat's cheeks using Stampin' Up Dazzling Details glitter glue.  I diecut the panel using a Lifestyle-Quicktuz Nesting Squares die and my Big Shot.

I punched some hearts from matching burgundy cardstock using a Carl CP-8 Hearts duo punch and glued them around the image using Tombow Mono Aqua glue and added glitter to them as well.

Here is a close-up:

The sentiment is from Altenew's sentiment set - 'Celebrate' and was stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.  I diecut the sentiment using a Spellbinders Labels Trio die and added a Vintage Gold Molossi rhinestone to each end then popped the sentiment up on dimensionals.

All the designer papers are by Colorbok from a 12" x 12" pad which I picked up on clearance from Riot Art and Craft.  The paper is really thin but I really like the vintage feel and colours of this pad - and it's good value because you get 50 single-sided sheets.  There is no name on the pad - just a number and I daresay it is probably retired.

All the layers were trimmed to 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools.

I punched the bottom panel using an EK Success Scalloped Scallops border punch, added the cream velveteen ribbon then popped the panel up on dimensionals.

Lastly, I popped the card front onto a white card base.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
