Penny Black Saturday Challenge Sketch

Hello, A lovely sunny day today here in Leeds,

The Penny Black challenge this week is a gorgeous sketch by Carole, and this is my card.

I've used the really cute Penny Black stamp Bees and Bunny for my image. I coloured it with Copics on whisper white cardstock  from Stamping Up. This cardstock has got to be the smoothest card I have ever seen, and was wonderful to colour on. There was hardly any bleed through too, really impressed!!!
Papers are by Papermania Blueberry Hill which I edged with Colour Box chalk ink burnt sienna. 
The ribbon and faux pearls from my stash.
I used nestabilities classic squares plain and scallop and just added doodle dots with a white inkssentials pen.
I recieved my first parcel from Stamping Up this week, thanks so much Victoria  pop over and have a look at March's offer.
The stamps are gorgeous and the paper punches are fabulous. They cut so easy even copy paper,
They'll be appearing on a card near you very soon, can't wait to use them!!!!

Enjoy your day hope the sun is shining for you too.

Love Cherie  //*.*\\
