Penny Black/ Papertake weekly


The card I've made today completes 2 challenges at once the first is obvious as I've used a penny black stamp, the criteria for the penny black challenge is a simple one just use stars and stripes somewhere on your card, my stripes are the different papers and the stars are stamped.
The other challenge this completes is Papertake Weekly I've rotated this sketch as you can see below (i hope this is allowed!)
Photobucket

I'm getting to like these challenge/sketch blogs
for this card I've used
Penny black stamp coloured with pro markers and distress inks
scenic route paper
ribbon from stash
stars stamps are autumn leaves
sentiment is My Sentiments Exactly
