Penny Black

It's Penny Black's Birthday, they are a year old. The challenge is to make card or project for a celebration. I saw this tea pot when I was browsing on Splitcoaststampers site. The directions and template is at Card Carousel. I thought this tea pot would be perfect with Penny Black Mice in tea cup stamp. The paper is from Stampin' UP and K&Company. The card I punch out two scallop circles and used a brad to create a card. The tea pot opens to put a gift in off tea or anything you would like. So Happy Birthday Penny Black!

The paper is from K&Company by Brenda Walton called Madeline. The flowers are from a punch, ribbon and eyelet are from my stash. I really like the challenges from The Next Level.

A whole week went by without me making any cards. WOW! I have been busy with my son. He has Cerebral Palsy and we had to cast his legs to help stretch his muscles. He grew 3" in 4 months a lot.
