Beauty

Hello everyone. Time for a new challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This month the theme is nature/trees. Penny Black's nature stamps first drew me to the company & there are so many to choose from. Your only problem will probably be picking what stamps to use.  I decided on this 2010 stamp called snow dust, but made a summer/fall card by using Distress Inks antique linen, frayed burlap, scattered straw, spiced marmalade & bundled sage along with Delicata Golden Glitz. The background zigzag image is from the 2012 set called puzzle parts. Sure glad I picked up these tiny gold stickers on sale--just what I needed here. Lots more inspiration can be found in the work of my talented teammates.  Hope you check them out & join in the challenge.  I'm also entering Anything Goes at SSS Monday. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  5. Hello Greta
    This stamp is such a classic, I have used it many times myself, the muted palette softens the effect of the scene beautifully. The torn edges is a plus for me. Great looking card.
