Penny Black Challenge - Red, White and Blue


Hello everyone!! Guess what I won my very first challenge over at House Mouse. It was only the second time I had entered a challenge with House Mouse. I found out last night and I was so surprised!! I won 2 free digistamps - one of my choice and one choosen for me. I do not know anything about digistamps so when I email the company I will have to ask them all about this - how to download, what paper to use, if I need to use a special ink - I have seen people using these digistamps but this is really new for me - it should be fun to try!! I will post a card using my new digistamp in the future! Anyhow on to today's card - I entered this card in the Penny Black challenge. The challenge is Red, White and Blue in honour of Independence Day in the USA. I will have to tell you I almost didn't enter this challenge because of the colors red, white and blue - definately not my favorite color combo. Then I thought to myself - it would be good to challenge myself and make a card using colors I am not fond of. To be honest again this is not my favorite card either - just can't warm up to those colors. Anyways I used this cute Penny Black image (love this image), Penny Black sentiment, ribbon, Martha Stewart star punch, sixix (spelling ?) die cut for stars, I finished the card off by adding some rhinestones to give it some bling. I used my copics to color the hedgies (sorry didn't keep out the colors but I know I used the warm grays , W1, W3 and W5 for sure and a red, blue and a yellow for the flowers. Thank you for stopping by for a look and I hope you have a wonderful week whereever you are from. We are finally getting that HOT summer weather that we had been promised and it is supposed to get even hotter by the weekend - Yeah!!!
