Penny Black Saturday Challenge - CASE IT (Jenny)

As it's the first Penny Black Saturday Challenge of the month, we have another 'CASE IT' challenge...this time we want  you to take inspiration from Jenny's fabulous easel card:

Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are:

The prize from Penny Black Inc is this fabulous stamp:


And from the Ribbon Girls:

A £10 gift voucher to spend in their online store!

So, on to my card...I took my inspiration from Jenny's monochrome card, opting for green rather than pink, and copied her layout too...using stamps from the 'Wonderful' set. The papers I've used are from the 'Isabelle' pad by First Edition, I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border...and 'de-bossed' (a la Jenny) the central strip using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder. I don't have any fancy corner punches/dies, so I added a few adhesive pearls instead.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
