Winners, Octoberfest, and Inspiration

October 5, 2010

Today’s another big day at Penny Black as we announce our latest and greatest challenge; Octoberfest! We’ve issued a card challenge to you, for the month of October.  You won’t believe the grand prize!

I’d like to start with a bit of holiday inspiration from Designer, Elizabeth Allan. Elizabeth made a lovely keepsake card by altering a die-cut to create an ornament. She added distressing, stamping, elevated layers, and she “grunged” up the ribbon with ink and gold stamping.

    Elizabeth’s ornament card is so creative and so clever. Love all the details including the distressing on the ribbon. It’s a real show stopper Elizabeth!
