ABC Challenge - Y is for Yesteryear


Well, I'm back with a card for another challenge today. Yes, you'll be seeing quite a few cards in the next few days, after that the novelty will probably wear off again for a while LOL!
Today's card is for this week's ABC Challenge, which is:
Y is for Yesteryear - We would like you all to dig out one of the first stamps you brought from the bottom of your craft box and give it a new lease of life.
This is one of Penny Black's vintage stamps, I'm so sad that we can't get these anymore as I think they are totally adorable! (You'll be seeing some more of these soon!)

Card Details:
* Image - Penny Black 'Friendly Chat'
* Coloured with Letraset Pro-markers
* Backing papers - K & Co 'Bailey'
* Punch - Lace Doiley by Martha Stewart
* Pearls - Joanna Sheen
* Photo corners - K & Co
