Penny Black does CCT!!

I had to make a quick card to send off to my SIL for her b-day. So I decided to use one of my new Penny Black stamps for the CCT challenge and I added embossing on it for the Penny Black challenge. The layout is a variation of one of Dawny P's sketches. I loved it until the coloring! When Korin came over the other day I tried to bargain with her. I told her I will make the layouts and she can do all the coloring!! But she didn't go for it! (LOL) Oh well, I will just have to deal with it!

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: rub-ons ~ Scenic Route, half pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts


Well I hope everyone is staying warm. It is the coldest day today! I just can't get warm. I hope everyone has a great evening!
