Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Penny Black Saturday Challenge
Time for our February challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge & we want to see something new.  It can be new goodies or a new technique.  I took the opportunity to pull out Penny Black's Flower Pop Outs die--a gift from a sweet friend.
The coloring was done with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers & I added a dot of Silver Stickles to each flower center.  A Spellbinders scalloped rectangle was used for the silver glitter paper mat.  The sentiment from Concord & 9th is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black.  This card is already in the mail to hopefully brighten a friend's day.  I'm entering Darnell's NBUS #10, ATSM, HLS Watercolor & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
