Thinking of You

Afternoon Folks.  Finished work early today so thought I would post this little card before I set off for my crafty room.  You may have noticed that my blog design has also changed.  Don't think I want a christmas themed template for the whole year lol.
I was looking through my stamps the other night and came across this Penny Black one.  I have had it for months but never inked it up.  Went with the sentiment Thinking Of You but could quite easily have done it as a Thank You card or even a birthday card.
The image was simply stamped onto cardstock in black and embossed using clear embossing powder.  I then die cut the image and distress inked the edges.  The background paper is from Papermania.  I added some ribbons, flowers and gems to complete the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Dilly Beans - use shades of read and black
Papertake - anything goes

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon.

Happy New Year Mags and thank you for visiting my Blog and commenting on my first card of 2012. I love your card, the backing paper is so colourful and contrasts so well with the floral stamp.
