My card is for the Penny Black Challenge: The challenge was to use blue, cream and gold & Cooking it up with Kate: Non human image, texture and something new. I used a heavy textured dark blue base. Just couldnt seem to get a clear enough photo to see the texture. The edge is punched to run a ribbon thru. I used my new label 1 nestie to cut the two cream shaped squares. I ran them thru a folder to texture and used some straw ink to grunge up and show the texture a bit. I cut the cream and the blue which is a graphic 45 print with the dahlia nestie. I alternated colors to form the flowers with a brad in the center. I then stamped the penny black hedgie and cut out with the label 1 nestie. Watercolored the image and grunged the edges. Added the three buttons from my button box which added the gold and the sentiment.
