Penny Black Case It

Evening Folks
Hope you have all had a great bank holiday weekend.  Can't believe it's come round to Monday evening already.  Back to the grindstone tomorrow (work by another name lol).
Just a quick post tonight before I relax and prepare myself for tomorrow.
The challenge over at Penny Black Saturday this week is to Case It.
Helen has produced this gorgeous creation and the challenge is to use it as inspiration for your own piece of work.  You could take the colours, layout, the embossing or anything else that has inspired you.

Now I have never done a Case It challenge before so decided to have a go.

The stamp is from Penny Black and I simply stamped it using distress inks and did a bit of watercolouring using distress inks.  I embossed some red and green coredinations and matted this onto kraft card. Added some red vintage ribbon and some pearls.  Job done.
This is very much out of my comfort zone as I normally embellish far more than this.  Still not too sure about it myself.  It was a real struggle stopping myself from adding to it lol.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday - Case It
Crafty Catz - CAS (hopefully this is CAS enough).

Thanks for popping by and hope you all have a good week.  I am going to Ally Pally on Saturday so hopefully the week won't drag by too much.
Take care
