Penny Black 'Whispers'

Hello all.
Hope you are well and having a great day.
Much of my time is still spent 'chicken watching' as I explained in this post from my other blog (Eve Marie Makes).
They have settled down a bit but now the new ones just fly up to the top of the coop which is about 5 foot high and stay there until I let the others out in the garden and they know that it is safe to come down!!

On to today's card:

Items used:
Penny Black stamp 3377K Whispers
Stampin Up 'Mocha Morning' papers download (I think that they are my favourite papers)
Stampin Up 1 1/4, 1 3/8, 1 1/2 circle punches
Stampin Up 1 3/4 scalloped circle punch
Josy Rose nail heads
Gel pen
Rubber Stamp Tapestry sentiment
Button and ribbon from stash

I have combined a few challenges with this card and would like to enter:
Sketch and Stash challenge (5 days left) My neglected items are my nail heads which I should use more often!!
Pixie's-snippets-playground 'use snippets'(3 days left)
Papertake Weekly  'Anything goes'  (5 days left)
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'Your favourite Penny Black stamp' - SERIOUSLY!!! How the heck can anyone chose their favourite!! LOL!  Well I chose this one as it was the MOST difficult to get hold of - as in 'AUSTRALIA' !! But I just had to have it and I'm glad that I have.

So that's all folks as Bugs Bunny would say!!
Thanks for stopping by my little old blog today - TTFN
