  It's the 3rd Saturday of the month, so we have more inspiration for you at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme is 'ANYTHING GOES' or the optional twist is 'Fussy & Fancy' Cards.

I just received some new Penny Black Stamps, so I was excited to use them. This card is still fairly CAS, but I made it a bit more 'fussy' by adding the embossed background.

I stamped the image with black ink, clear embossed, coloured with Zigs and Karin Markers.  Next I fussy cut, deconstructed the yellow flowers  and re-arranged to fit my card.
Stamps: Penny Black Sweet Centrepiece
Embossing Folder: Altenew

You can see more inspiration from our talented  DT at our blog. I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.
