Another Penny Black Easter card!



Another quick Penny Black Easter card. When browsing the DT cards of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, I thought to myself...Hey, I have that darling card...I should use it!

I was playing around with my Martha Stewart corner punch and decided to try making a straight line border. Although I think it turned out OK, it is not my fave on this card.  I think it made this card a little too fru-fru for my taste. Guess you can't love them all. My inner CAS style  fighting it out with fru-fru LOL!

Off to get ready for the wee little grandson's visit to Gwamma's house!


Card details:

This is my favorite PB stamp, and I made my DGD's cards using it this year! It's sweet, even with the fru-fru border :)
Happy Easter weekend!
