Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hi everyone...hope you are all well. Thought I would enter into this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which is to use blue, cream and gold.

I think this border stamp has to be one of the first Penny Black stamps I ever bought. The PB sentiment is from the Salutations clear stamp set. I've used a gold Encore ink pad to create the background.

I've used my E K Success embossed curve punch again..I'm just loving this punch, and added some gold ribbon and cream pearls to finish.

Not happy with the photos..the lighting really is naff today as it's so overcast. Roll on spring!

How very chic Sarita! Love those colours and the way you've tied your bow and used the pearls, and the border stamp is really pretty.
Have a good weekend.
