Penny Black and more challenge GDT spot - Die cuts

Good morning all

I was really delighted to have my card chosen in the challenge over at 

to be GDT in this months challenge

The theme is

Use die cuts
(remember you must use a penny black stamp)

here's what I came up with
using this lovely floral from Penny Black

it's called Botanical Notes (40-276)

I just love the floral stamps at Penny Black - and this one is especially gorgeous!
This is another lovely big 8x8 inch cards - I love working with this size

Here's what I did....

Stamp - Botanical notes from Penny Black
Coloured with copics and Spectrum Noir pencils
Papers - LOTV Bear essentials
Card - MFT
Sentiment stamp - Heartfelt creations
Corner dies - both from memory box and quite old now - Macarena corner and Bow flourish
Labels - MFT - labels and stitched labels dies
Pearls and butterfly from my stash
Gold shimmer gilding wax on and around image

Thank you to the DT at Penny Black and more for choosing me - I really enjoyed making this card
