Penny Black Thank you

I have been dying to play along over at the Penny Black blog but all the stamps I have by them are Christmas! I finally got my hands on 4 new (well new to me ;) Penny Black stamp sets and this week I get to play too (Yippee!)

The Challenge is for Thank you cards. I decided to make my card inspired by  Kathy Racoosin. She is the whole reason I found Penny Black after all. She is so very talented I {heart} her style. If you haven't yet please go check out her blog :)

Okay onto the card

I started by cutting a piece of pink to 4 x 5 1/4. I embossed (ProvoCraft, Divine Swirls) and then used a white gel pen to draw dots on the swirls. I adhered this to a white card base.

I stamped the flower (To You, Penny Black) twice on orange paper. I did a little shading with an orange marker and then cut out one complete flower. I only cut out the center for the top flower. I embellished with some more white dots.  I assembled the flower with foam tape and filled the center with pink rhinestones. I also added stardust stickles to the natural lines of the flower.

For my band I punched (EK Success) a black strip which I adhered to a lighter orange strip. For the sentiment (Flower Gallery, Penny Black) I stamped in black (Jet Black Archival Ink, Ranger) on white and accented with a few more pink rhinestones. Everything was adhered flat, the only foam I used was in between the flower layers.

Wishing you all a gorgeous weekend and a Blessed Easter. God is good and I am so grateful :)
