Welcome to my second day of designing for the Penny Black Blog

This colorful congratulatory card requires no coloring!  I kept the colors and design clean and simple so it could be used for a variety of occasions.

These bright star bursts were made by stamping the image with black ink on various colors of Penny Black’s Mix & Match Cardstock.  A circle punch (used upside down for alignment) made cutting symmetrical circles quick and easy.

Spanish Moss VersaFine is a great match for the light shade of Spring Meadow cardstock used here with the Paisley Outline.  After matting it with dark green, it was elevated with dimensional foam on the front of the card.

A fun sentiment and crystal gems complete the card.

I will be back tomorrow with a card that I am proud to say uses feathers. (Hints in blue.)
