Penny Black Saturday Challenge #193!

Good morning! I hope you all are well! I've had a rubbish week, struggled through a day at work feeling rubbish, the next one off sick then struggled through yesterday again and now I still feel c**p!!! And I love my saturdays! :-( Oh well, I'll stop feeling sorry for myself and tell you about this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, and it's a nice and easy one, This, That and The Other! Or Anything Goes to you and I! So go mad and make what you wish just remember to include a Penny Black something as your focal point. This weeks prize is this lovely Penny Black stamp from Crimson Cloud.
And here is my card! I've finally made my mums Mothers Day card, now just my brothers and husbands to go! ;-) I used this gorgeous stamp from the Spring 2012 release and to colour it, I used the technique I leant on the Copic workshop I went on. You colour in the stamp, spritz it with Colourless blending soloution then stamp down, et voila! Then I just sparkled it all up, added some simple papers, a glittery ribbon and a few gems. I also tinkered about with the sentiment stamp. It's from the Papertrey Tiny Tags set but its obviously American and said 'Mom' so I took a little craft knife to it and chopped out the top of the o, so now it says Mum! Tee hee! Thanks for dropping by, I hope you have a great weekend!
