Penny Black Week 36

I managed to make a card for this week's Penny Black Challenge which was to use a sketch that was done by Natalie.

I have some penny black cat stamped images that are very neglected so I decided to use one for this card..... and very cute he is too!!... or perhaps it should be a she beacuse of all the pink??!!

I found a very useful tip on Inspirational about continuous embossing and I used this technique on my background card using my swiss dots embossing folder.

The papers are floral doodle, which are something else I haven't used for ages either! I punched the flowers with my retro flower punch and I ran them through the cuttleug too.

Paper/card: White, black and Pink card, Floral Doodle
Stamp: Penny Black
Colouring: Distress inks - weathered wood, tattered rose and black soot.
Embellishments: American crafts ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, swiss dots embossing folder, retro flower punch
