January blues

Hello there stampers!
I hope you have had a wonderful and creative weekend!
I've finally managed to finish a nice card in a colour combination that I love, love, love: butter and light blue. The focal image was created with a Penny Black stamp "Words like flowers", the newest addition to my collection. As the Penny Black Saturday challenge is "Janaury blues" this month, I decided to stamp it in light brown ink on light blue cardstock and embossed it (hence the glare in the photo, sorry!). The image was then cut out using Spellbinders petit oval nestabilities. Button, ribbon and flowers are from my stash, and so is the sentiment stamp. I also used a Martha Stewart punch to create a decorated border and sponged all the edges with brown ink. The papers I used are digital and love them, I think I will be using them for another card. Stickles were added to the flowers - some bling cannot be missing, can it? ;-)

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - January Blues

Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything goes

Have a nice evening and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vittoria
