Penny Black August challenges

Hello there stampers!
Are you enjoying a HOT summer, too? It's scorching hot here in the north of Italy, and this damn heat won't leave before the end of the month, phew! Luckily we have our creative activities to keep us busy, right?
I have a Penny Black card to share with you today. I used a couple of my favourite stamps on it, that is CATS! Aren't those images incredibly cute? I coloured them both with Copics, used Spellbinders squares and scalloped squares to cut them out and the new Classic Edgeabilities (ric-rac) for the border. The checkered ribbon is from my stash, while the sentiment is computer generated. I decorated the upper corner with the Whimsy Stamps corner die set. The designer paper is a digital one - I thought those light browns and blues would be perfect for my images.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - "Double the Trouble"

Penny Back at All Sorts - "Whiskers and/or wings"

Thanks for stopping by and ... happy stamping!! :0)

Hugs, Vittoria


  1. Good morning Vittoria,

  2. Your images are perfect for the "double the trouble" and "Whiskers and/or wings" challenges. I really like the black, blue and cream colour combination and your sentiment works well with the images.
    Thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More this month.
    Good luck in our prize draw and we hope to see you again soon.


  3. Love this! The cat images are just too darn cute, reminds me of one of my cats when she is in a bad mood LOL. Great colors and sketch too, love the corners and punched border.
    So glad you joined us this month at penny black and more!

  4. Great card, would not want to mess with him - he looks a mean old puddy cat.
