Use Printed Papers

Penny Black Saturday Challenge


Hope you'll join us this month at Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  We want to see your creations using at least 3 different printed papers & don't forget to use a Penny Black stamp, die or sticker.  I love the beautiful leaves dies which I cut from 3 papers in Penny Black's first paper pad & from white cardstock.  A bit of Stickles Frosted Lace was added to the edges of the leaves.  The stitched dies are Lil' Inkers & I used them to make a frame which I attached to a panel of vellum. The sentiment from Penny Black's Friendship set is stamped with Brilliance Starlite Black.  I threaded some blue twine through a white button & finished off with a few white sequins.  Check out the work of my talented teammates for more inspiration.  Need a jump start?   Penny Black DT member, Alexandra, designed the perfect sketch to use HERE.  I'm entering my card at Addicted to CAS Code Word: Blue & for the first time I'm joining in at The Color Throwdown. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.    
Edited to add: Thanks to Daen'Ys I'm also entering the stitching challenge at House of Cards.

I love how you framed this card and the soft look of vellum. The sentiment is one of the very best.

Okay, that comment above is really from me, I didn't notice that Linda was still signed in...ha ha, I am sure she would say the same thing though. It was all that crisp white that really popped out for me!
