NEW Penny Black Blog!

The Penny Black Blog has a new look, and a challenge!  It is to scraplift Ashley Marcu's beautiful card:


I love the subtle aqua stamping on the left side of her panel, and how it is echoed by the buttons! I really wanted to get in on this challenge, but the rub is that I own exactly ONE Penny Black stamp!  That's never stopped me before, so here is my take on Ashley's card:


My stamp is called Framed Pansy, #2408K, from 2002.  It truly is framed, so I had to cut out the flower to add to my stamped panel; it's all I could salvage for this particular card.   Wish me luck!
