Penny Black Embossing Challenge

After my walk yesterday ( and the icecream I had on the way) I was feeling invigorated.... so decided to make a card for the Penny Black Challenge... embossing.  I pulled out my very first stamp... Penny Black's "Burst of Blue" ~ a really sweet Daisy.  I revisited an old card
Burst of blue

and came up with this

Pink Flowers

I change the colour scheme and background.  I used the HA Envelope pattern and then embossed the Music Background.   I tore the edge and added to the base card.  I embossed the flowers onto some white card and then painted them with Aged Mahogany Distress ink and spritzed with Gold Perfect Pearl mist.

Thanks for stopping by.... I appreciate all your lovely comments.  Have a great week

I didn't realize you had revisited an older card for this one, Dawn. Love both! The color of your flowers on the new one looks so beautiful with the added gold spritz!

Both are wonderful Dawn!

Changing the Three Flowers to the left of the card is kinder to my eye, but both are lovely designs Dawn.
I am getting better, just a sore throat now.
