Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I have been wanting to try these matchbook cards for a while now, so I thought they would be great to use for the PBSC. The challenge this week is "Let's get Dotty". I think I would use this size more for tags, but I just love the design. Enlarging them would make a great card, too.



The measurments for the matchbook are 7 5/8 X 3 1/8, scored @ 3, 3 1/4 and 6 3/4 inches.
I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I used my nesties for the layers. I embossed and painted the 2 hearts and embossed the paw prints directly onto the card. I embossed and colored the tie again, cut it out and used some silicone to layer it. I used double sided tape to adhere the chocolate to the inside of the valentine card. I also added some stickles.



This is inside.
I was pleased with the way they turned out, I hope you like them too!

Have a great day, everyone
Thanks for stopping by....
