Penny Black Saturday Challenge #204!

Afternoon! And a Happy Diamond Jubilee Weekend to you all! I hope you're enjoying whatever is going on around you!
I'm back a little late with my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge. It's the first of the month and therefore it's a CASE it challenge. June sees the turn of Kath and she's chosen this beautiful card for us to take inspiration from.

There's 2 fab prizes to be picked up this week, a sweet sentiment stamp from Penny Black and a gorgeous lilac ribbon bundle from The Ribbon Girl.
Here's my card inspired by Kaths, I chose to CASE most of her card! I just changed the layout around a bit and made the coral colour a bit more prominent. This is the first time I've stamped an image like this, I really admire the was Kath uses inking and distressing techniques but I'm known for being a bit clumsy so clean and simple is usually a bit safer form me! I stamped the flowers in a coral ink and clear embossed it, then sponged over 'Old Paper' and 'Frayed Burlap' Distress Inks, then stamped the script image over the top, again in 'Frayed Burlap'. I little wipe over the embossing and I'm done! I hope you like it!
