Penny Black Birthday card..

Hi folks this is another B/day card for my lovely special friend/neighbour, this one was made
for my daughter to give to her..I dont use my PB stamps much at all & I do love them
note to oneself must make more use of much loved stamps.. think most crafters are guilty of this?
My neighbour has 2 lovely cats so thought this PB stamp “Merci` Bouquet 1468K” was just the image.
This cat certainly looks like hes got the cream with that big smile on his face..lol image is coloured with
Promarkers &  Prisma pencils matt & layered the image with foam pads..the DP is BasicGrey  Sugar Rush pad.
I thought it was refreshing & spring like.. I used my Cherry Lynn French Pastry doily die with more of
the B/G papers, sentiment is LOTV.. the  filigree corner was silver but I painted it white with acrylic paint.
MS B/fly punch, red ribbon from stash.. I only had a few hrs. notice for this card so am not entirely happy
with it..I’m not the fastest card maker in west by any means..
