Penny Black Challenge

Welcome back, I worked on this card last night and as its my youngest brothers birthday soon I thought this would be a good time to make his card.
The Penny Black challenge this week is 3 - 2 - 1, 3 brads, 2 ribbons and 1 flower.
There are 2 brads in the background paper and the 3rd is the center of the flower.

(not happy about this picture sorry)

For the 2 ribbons I used a brown ribbon as a base and then layered a baby blue ribbon into the center of the brown.

1 massive flower in the bottom left hand corner of the card, the brad used is actually covered in baby blue flock to give it a more touch feel feeling (does that make sense?)

Papers Used: Background Funky Fellas (thanks Kath),
chocolate brown and baby blue from stash

Image: Don't know again from Kath xoxo

Brads: American Crafts

Flower: DCWV

Ribbons: from stash

Flock: Stampendouse, snow cone blue

Colours: Copic Sketch pens (see picture for details)

Ok think that's everything, please let me know what you think of my 1st card using my copic pens. See you soon, Karen xoxoxo
