It's time for another of my guest designer cards for the Papertake Weekly Challenge...and another of Dawny's fab sketches. I found this adorable Penny Black image ('Friendly Surprise') in amongst my box of images...and after a quick rummage through my papers...I found some scraps of this BasicGrey 'Phoebe' paper...the little bird on the image is the spitting image of the birdies on the paper...how fab is that!? I distressed the edges of all the layers of papers, and added some faux stitching with my Cutter Bee Bug, and a white gel pen. I wanted to make the paper as much of a feature as the image, so kept the embellishing to a minimum, adding just a few pearls in the corners. The sentiment stamp is by Whiff of Joy.
As always, there's more inspiration from the awesome design team over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog.
