Penny Black Saturday challenge

Hi there,

Just found time to make a card for the new Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog using a sketch by Di Hickman. As its their first week the challenge was to use your very first PB stamp. Mine was "Buzz in the air! " and hopping around seems this was a popular stamp. I deliberatly frayed the edges of the ribbon as its very thick, the idea was to make it 'tasselly' but think I might need to trim that again. I also seem to be obsessesed with scallop circles lately!

paper and sentiment sticker by papermania

ribbon from a selection at hobbycraft
This card below is the very first card I made with my very 1st PB stamp lol.

Thanks for looking
