Penny Black & One Stop Challenge Card

The theme for Penny Black Saturday Challenge 63 is 'Stitching' so my little ballerina cat is stitched onto her nestability mat, the tags are 'stitched' and the backing paper (my own creation) is 'stitched' to the base card.
You ned to get over there to see the DT cards - they're fab this week (as they are every week) and worth a lickle 'sken'!

The colour cheme of Pink & Black comes from 'One Stop Challenge' 42.
I've only just found this blog but I'm now a follower and will return thence!
I adore Penny Black Stamps and have loads on my wish list and I think the pink & black combination lends itself well! It certainly makes a change from all my recent 'vintagey' colours of green & brown!
I hope you like it and thank you for looking!
