Penny Black Challenge - Purple, Cream and Brown



Hello everyone today I am entering this card in this week's Penny Black challenge, Purple, Cream and Brown. I actually wasn't too sure about this combo but once my card was finished I was like - WoW! I like those colors together. I used an adorable PB dog image together with a PB sentiment. The dog house is cut from a Sizzlet die and I used a balloon punch for the 3 larger balloons. I edged the balloons and the background purple paper with Tim Holtz dusty concord distress ink and I used Walnut stain for the dog, doghouse and around the edges of the cream cardstock. The balloon paper is from my stash pile and the dark brown bone paper is Basic Grey - Max & Whiskers collection (love that paper!!). I added a ribbon and a dog bone to finish off the card. I actually have to say I like how this one turned out! - Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit - I hope your weekend is going a bit better than mine - our hot water tank took it's last breath last night so needless to say we are without hot water till Tuesday morning (of course it had to happen on a long weekend). Our basement got a bit of flooding as well so we are trying to dry out our carpet downstairs with fans - hopefully it won't stain. This morning I had to take a sponge bath and wash my hair in really really cold water - it is not fun! I guess things could be worse - but it really is an inconvenience. Hope the rest of your weekend is filled with fun, sun and maybe a bit of stamping!

Your stamping friend
