Another Penny Black Christmas card

Welcome!  Today I'm featuring another Penny Black stamp that was introduced this year, called Robin's Wish.  I love the primitive, retro style of it!

PB Dec 3

I stamped the bird and branch in brown ink and the holly leaf in green, then minimally-colored the bird with some markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in red ink, and cut out my panel using a Spellbinder's Labels Eighteen.  Next I used that same die to trace and fussy-cut  a red label to frame my panel, and then affixed it to my card with the holly background paper.  And I used lots of tiny red pearls as my berries. 

Because this stamp is such a simple design, it is a great one to use when you need a fast card!  

Thanks for visiting me today - have a great weekend!
