Penny Black 'Flower Power'

Hello! Today I have a card for the July Penny Black Allsorts Challenge 'Flower Power'. It was a really simple challenge this month. All you have to do is make a card with flowers on it and be sure to use at least one Penny Black image.

I chose an image from 'Garden Friends'. My sketch is by Verve. I stamped the image twice and popped just the flowers up on dimensionals so the little hedgehog really looks like he is popping his head out of a bed of flowers. I used an MFT Rolled Flower Die to make my own flower. The paper is by My Minds Eye Stella Rose 'Gertie'. I put Stickles on all the flowers and the bee in the image, and a pearl in the inside of the handmade flower. I also decorated the inside of the card by using up some scraps and stamping a second image from the set.

Have a great day! Amy


  1. This is gorgeous Amy! Love the layout and all the fab details.

    Many thanks for sharing at Penny Black at Allsorts.


  2. wonderful work. I am working on ornaments made from thin wood squares and my friend's prints. I think I want to put a design on the other side that is mine out of scarp book papers like in the shape of a bird or florals that could look holiday-ish too. Thank you for inspiring me to keep on keeping on with ideas.

  3. What a cute card Amy! I love all those colorful flowers, and the way you added the sentiment. Oh, and the inside is so cute too!
