Penny Black Blog Hop

Blog hops are always fun--glad you joined in as the Stamp Squad celebrates this week's Fan Favorites EventJUDY started us off with her amazing work--you don't want to miss it!  My card uses Penny Black's "kind wishes, 40-080" which I stamped in Adirondack Cranberry--an old favorite. Then I covered the panel with Therm-O-Web Glimmer Dust, Gold--a new favorite! For the background I used some molding paste with a stencil on my printed paper & sponged with tea dye ink when dry. Then I dry embossed & inked the edges with Golden Glitz before matting the piece with dark red cardstock.  A gold bow & sequins finish off the card.  Hope I've given you some inspiration.  Next stop is LIN--bet you'll be adding to your "must have" list!  If you get lost just head to The Penny Black Blog for all the links.
