Penny Black Challenge #63

Evening everyone! The kids are all back in school as of today, which means the rat race begins again since I am "mom's taxi!" I missed them so much today - but they have to go ;)

I had an absolute blast making this Penny Black piggy card for challenge #63 - stitching. I cannot sew for a hill of beans! I did this pink border by hand (it's pretty bright IRL and is next to the green ribbon) and really need to consider a machine again since it's quite a neat little trend. I used the "bikini" stamp from the PB line ........ which always makes me smile :) I added a small 3-d dot under her nose to stand it out, some bling to her purse. Aint she purty? ::: tee hee:::
