Penny Black Saturday Challenge 22

Sentiments only - what a tough challenge this week! I immediately panicked, thinking I didn't really have any Penny Black sentiment stamps, other than the tiny ones that came in the transparent sets...but then I found this cute bauble one amongst my Christmas stamps, called '"wishes" ornament'...I bought it before last Christmas, but never got round to using it. I masked off the top of the bauble before stamping, as it looked kind of odd when I cut it out with my Nesties, then embossed it in silver. I've hung it inside an aperture (also cut with a Nestie), and then just covered the front of the card with a piece of Anita's paper (from the 'Black Classic Christmas' pack).
