Penny Black and Sketch Saturday challenges


Here's a card that I've just finished (started it on monday)! It's for two challenges - Sketch Saturday which is another great sketch, and also Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is "Frame It". I tried to make a frame using my nesties, by mounting the patterned paper onto card and then putting the image behind. Not sure if all that effort has made it look any different than using nesties in the normal way, but hey, I tried!
Stamps used: Penny Black
Inks used: Brown Stazon
Colouring method: prisma pencils and sansodor
Cardstock used: orange wallpaper and some paper, maybe mm??
Tools used: nesties, 5 flower punch, paisly cuttlebug dies, Stampin Up scallop edge punch and crop-a-dile to make the holes
Other Embellishments: ribbon, gems
