This card is for two challenges, Penny Black Week 42 where the theme is think spring and Truly Scrumptious Challenge 3 where there is a great sketch to follow.
The Penny Black stamp is an old one from 1997 and I think it is so pretty. I just received it as a gift for christmas, but this is the first time I have used it and it is coloured with distress inks.
The papers are from papermania and the outer circle has been pierced for added detail.
