Hi Everyone, hope you are all well! My Challenge for today is from Penny Black Saturday Challenge No. 10 - Ribbons. I was lucky enough a few weeks ago to win the Penny Black Challenge, and my prize was the "Penny Black 12 Days of Christmas" Clear Unmounted Set of stamps. Well, here is one of the characters off that Set of Stamps.
I have coloured her in, and cut her using my Oval Nestabillities. I decided that I would layer up with another size Nesty, and when I had finished cutting the template out, I saw the "off-cut", and thought I would use that instead, just simply placing a different background paper at the back. With the Ribbon, and have used a "Button-Hole" punch to make cuts at the top, and then just threaded Ribbons through, and twisted them. Then finally finished off the card with a couple of paper flowers.

Thanks for visiting, and come back soon!
