Penny Black's first sketch challenge

At the Penny Black Blog, Jenyfur has challenged us with a sketch for her first card challenge.


I don't have any Penny Black stamps with me here in Florida, but fortunately I did bring down a set of Penny Black stickers that I bought years ago and have never used.  It's called Hearts and Flowers.  Here is my submission, following the sketch almost exactly. 


Supplies: red and cream parchment cardstocks, Martha Stewart double loop punch, October Afternoon Thrift Shop dp, Penny Black Hearts and Flowers sticker, nesties labels four, Hero Arts CL434 Just Find Me (sentiment), fired brick distress ink, winter white seam binding, button, white twine

I think this makes a nice Valentine for a friend!  Thanks so much for visiting!
