Penny Black Card

Hi all,

Well this is the first card I have chosen to share with you.
The image is a Penny Black stamp from the Critters Party Transparent set. I would like to Thank Diane H for the kind use of her stamp (we had a stamping party lol). He is then coloured in with the shimmering watercolours available from The Works. I then cut him out using the standard circle range of Nestabilities. The black circle is also cut the same way, then run through the Swiss Dots embossing folder in my Cuttlebug. The black card has also been run through Happy Birthday embossing folder. I have then just matted and layered up the card and added a ribbon tie for embellishment.
