Here I am with my second card of the day. This one is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I love Penny Black stamps. Their animal images are really cute, and they have some very pretty elegant style stamps as well. For this one I chose my new Pinky Joy stamp. This is the first piggy stamp I have ever purchased. That's actually unusual because I used to collect pig theme stuff. I still have my collection, but haven't added to it for quite awhile.
The theme for this week's challenge is shapes, and we were to use three different shapes on our cards, not including the card itself or shapes within the image. I actually have four shapes - rectangles, circles, flowers and hearts. The hearts are a little hard to see. They are the centers of the flower embellishments that I put together. I am really enjoying putting my own little flower embellishments together. These are made from a small flower punch, 1/4" heart punch and a tiny pink gem in the center.
If the layout of this card looks familiar, I used a Mojo Monday sketch from several weeks ago. I love Mojo Monday sketches. When I'm stuck for a layout idea, they always help me out.
Thanks for looking. I think I'm done making cards today. It's back to work tomorrow - I'm so excited - NOT! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
