Mojo Monday, Penny Black Embossing and an award

Julee has done another amazing sketch this week - love it!! Once I had finished the card I realised it qualified for this weeks Penny Black challenge which is embossing.


I love this image - it makes the perfect new baby card. The image has, as per, been coloured with distress inks and H2O's. The papers are Papermania. The sentiment stamp is from the Riveting set by Stampin Up.

I tried something different with the ribbon, I threaded the buttons on to the ribbon together with the label and think it worked really well. The lemon panel has been embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.


I have left the inside blank as the card is for my daughter to give to her first childhood "best friend" that she lost contact with over 20 years ago and has recently just made contact with through Facebook (it has it's merits I suppose tho you won't get me on there lol. Took me long enough to get a blog going!!)

I received this lovely award from Donalda, Lynda and Vanja

The rules are to pass it on to 7 people, so I am going to pass it on to Pol, Clare, Mandy, Nettie, Anne Marie, Nicci and Sue


Thanks for looking,

  52. So sorry I've not been visiting of late. We only got our ADSL line fixed today and had to survive without it since 23 December.

    This card is just gorgeous and really fits the baby theme. As you say that image is just a cutie pie.

    Everything of the best for 2009.
