Exciting News!!!!!! & Penny Black Sketch Challenge

Sing with me everyone................"I'm so excited and I just can't hide it I'm about to loose control & I think I like it!!!!!!" Why am I so excited..........because I got into the Love to Doodle design team!!!! YEAH!!!!!! I love Sally-Anns designs and am over the moon to be part of her DT I can't wait to get creating for her new website which will be revealed soon! Right now calm...................over the last few weeks I feel that I've been forgetting one if my great loves ..........Penny Black. So this week I was determined to join in with the challenge over at Penny Black Saturday challenge , It was a sketch challenge and here is my card:

I have used one of my fave PB images, I can't get my hands on it though so have to rely on stamped images from my buddy! I have teamed it with SU Bashful Blue designer papers and SU Bashful Blue card stock. I have ruffed all my edges and have stitched as well .....ark at me! The ribbon is also Bashful Blue stripe from the new SU mini catalogue. I have finished off by using the "thank you" stamp from the "oval all" stamp set and matching punches.
