Penny Black Saturday and other Challenges

Hello everyone-
I'm back- it's been a rough couple of weeks so I haven't been able to post. I've been creating some things and catching up on some RAKs that I've meant to send out and I'll be posting those over the next few days.

Anyway, I have been wanting to participate in the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for awhile, but never got around to it. I made this tent card for a special friend and I decided to also submit it into the challenge. This week's challenge was to use 3 flowers, 2 buttons and a bow. I used this mouse stamp that I bought last year but never inked up and then I suspended it from the card. I made a bow w/ purple organza ribbon (and I'm really happy about how the bow turned out) and then I sewed a button to the center of the bow. The flowers are a mixture of prima flowers and some stickers that I had before. I closed the card w/ 2 eyelets and then glued 2 roses that I picked up from Photocraft before. I decided to balance the card w/ 3 green pearls. I copied Shirley's idea, but I didn't have the grass MS punch so I used the icicle one to add a border on the bottom of the card to "somewhat hide" the base

I also decided to submit this card for entry into Tamiko's challenge #2 (using your nesties) I used my circle nestie to cut out the hole for the mouse to suspend into and then I used my scallop circle nestie to outline the circle.

I hope my friend likes her card and RAK, I've been meaning to send it out for a while but just hadn't finished everything yet.

Anyway, I hope you like my card and thanks for visiting- I really appreciate all of your comments and I look forward to reading all of them.

Until next time, take care and God Bless
