Ooh La La!

This is my second card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...I told you I'd have to have a go at the other sketch! lol
I've also managed to make this card fit some other challenge themes: Pink Elephant 'Birthdays'; Creative Inspirations (Sunday) 'Distressing'; Creative Inspirations (Wednesday) 'New Year, New Stash'; and Charisma Cardz 'Anything New'. My 'new' items are the gorgeous My Mind's Eye 'Ooh La La (for Him)' papers...another of my post-Christmas sales purchases...
I've used them with an image form the Penny Black 'Hugs' set, a Hero Arts sentiment stamp, some Prima flowers, and some ribbon from Poppicrafts. I distressed the edges of all the papers, and added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.
