Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 207 - Fly the flags


This is my entry for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week where the challenge is "Fly the Flags!".  I've made this card for my Auntie Ann and to follow the challenge Quickutz alphabet and pennant dies were used to personlise the card for her.

The main image is from the Penny Black stamp You are the Bestest and is coloured with Promarkers.  Ann loves cats and flowers so hopefully she will appreciate this card.  I don't know what she used to feed her cats on but I was always amazed at how big they were.  The main image is framed using Nestabilities and Grand Nestabilities plain and scalloped circles.  Purple and gold thread were stitched over the frame and a gold line peel off lined the inside of the frame.


The coloured card used is from the Papeterie and the patterned papers were left over pieces from other projects.  The striped, floral and Happy Birthday papers are from Cuddly Buddly downloads, and the gingham card was also from the Papeterie.

The floral embellishments were made using Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral die, a Tonic small flower punch, an L-Em stamen punch and a Quickutz leaf die.  The tags were also cut using a Quickutz die.  A few peel off dots, brads, Garden Green ribbon from Stampin' up and purple Encore metallic ink sponged around the scalloped edges of the card blank were the final touches.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges
