And my last card for today is for Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 50 - Buttons Galore! I have used a Penny Black stamp called Poppy Fields, which I got in a bargain bin when I was at Ally Pally last month. The image has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens, and then cut with a Label nesty, and layered on shades of green card. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called Perhaps. I also ran a strip of green card through a Fiskars paper punch, and also the green backing paper. Where the holes were on the green backing paper, I have covered them over with some little buttons. The card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment, some cream ribbon, and some more tiny olive green square buttons, all from my craft stash. Thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a great day!
