Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Desert Island Stamp

This week on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, we're asking you to choose your:

'Desert Island Penny Black Stamp'
Are we really only allowed to take just one???

If you manage to decide which is your all time favourite, these are the prizes on offer:



4042K Daisy Fields




An assortment of yummy ribbons, lace and trims.

Now, this is a tough challenge...how can you choose just one Penny Black...they're all my favourites! I decided to look through my Penny Black cards and choose one of the stamps that I use most often...which turns out to be 'Birthday Dog'...it's also one of the first Penny Black stamps I bought. In order to make the stamp the main feature, I kept the rest of the card really simple, using a couple of papers from the 'Hippity Hoppity' pad by We R Memory Keepers, distressing the edges and adding some faux stitching. I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border, and the sentiment (which I stamped in two parts) is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
