Dust It Off Sunday - 5 - Penny Black - Best of Luck!

Hello and Happy Sunday - Dusting off another one of my wood mounted stamps this week. A Penny Black Stamp - The name on this stamp is "Best of Luck!" ... odd name, but I guess this chicken does need some luck to get all those candles out...
I have colored with my Copics - and then to make those flames even more eye catching I added Diamond Stickles to them.

For the card I made an easel card, with bright yellow card stock, and Basic Grey "Color Me Silly" pattern papers. Spellbinders Mega Rectangle Nesties to mat the image, and EK Success border punch. I did lots of sewing on this one too.. a great chance to use a new stitch for me on my sewing machine. Don't you think that this kind of looks like a chicken scratch pattern? LOL
I wanted to keep it kind of simple with the embellishments to show off the larger image and those bright papers. So I found some white buttons in my stash to simplify things.
And that sentiment from is also from Penny Black, and perfect for the image!

This was a lot of fun to Dust off.. and make a card with! So have you dusted off any of your older images lately? Let me know so I can come see what you have done!

Have a great Sunday - HUGS and

Copics Used: B00, B02, B05, BG10, C01, E35, E39, E42, E74, N0, N05, T03, R08, R14, R35, Y08, Y11, Y38, and a blender pen.
