Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I decided to try my hand at some paper piecing for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The challenge was to use a Penny Black stamp and a banner somewhere on the card. I used the Penny Black La Soiree stamp. Once I had stamped the image onto white card, I also stamped it onto coordinating patterned paper and cut it out to make her dress, handbag and balloons.
I used the Spellbinders Banner Basics to cut the patterned banner and glued the banner onto embroidery thread. I cut an aperture in the card and a frame from patterned paper using Grand Nestabilities to give the card some depth.
To finish the card off I stamped and cut out the sentiment and used some gems to decorate the banner.
I had great fun making this card and really like the girly pink colour scheme.
