Who Doesn't Love Penny Black

From elegant to frivolous there's a stamp for all reasons when you choose PB and it's a good bet that most everyone has at least one of their precious images. I was surprised when I sorted through all of my stamps and realized how many I have (still not enough, tho). Under the circumstances, I thought it was time to enter a PB challenge and have a little show off fun with one of my favorite cuties.  This week's challenge was a sketch so I followed it faithfully and came up with this card for a friend who has a birthday coming up very soon. I was really lucky to find the cute sentiment that matched so perfectly and when a card making buddy directed me to CAS-ual Fridays and their challenge to use a pun on your card I couldn't resist.

I colored him with Copics, added some digital designer paper, my 'punny' sentiment and a bit of bling along with a yellow gingham ribbon and some yellow Prima flowers. That's it. No muss, no fuss. Just fun.
