Penny Black challenge

Well, I've managed to concentrate and get one finished so progress indeed ........ very me I know, but decided to start back after the enforced drought with safety and in my comfort zone following the super sketch for this weeks Penny Black challenge.

My main image is the lovely verse - Penny Black 2695J from which I have taken a section for the sentiment (cut from a Nesite ribbon tag run through the cuttlebug) at the bottom of my card. Both stamped with versafine back and embossed with detail clear and shaded with Tim Holtz shabby shutters to match my DP which I think is K&Co, but not entirely sure as I only had this piece left ........ correctly filed in my new "drawers" under "green". The poppy flowers are taken from Penny Black 3949H which I stamped out several times. The leaf was cut from Cricut storybook and inked with the same TH ink and edged with Stayzon grey to add definition.
