ABC Challenge Z- Zero The Cuttlebug Spot - Favourite Embossing Folder


I hope the recipients of this card don't take it the wrong way... I'd better explain.
Sometime ago I was the conductor of a local Choral Society... for about 10 years or so. The choir as an organisation is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee this year and my husband (who also used to sing in the choir) and I have been invited to a Gala Celebratory Concert.
It was a formal invitation but I thought in reply I would be a little light hearted. However, I hope that they don't think that I compare them to a load of cackling chickens!!!!! Time will tell.
This card is for ABC's Challenge Z for Zero... no ribbons or embellishments etc.. It is also for The Cuttlebug Spot's favourite Embossing Folder. I think that without doubt, my favourite is Swiss Dots. It always looks so clean and you can extend the coverage on cards so easily.
I coloured the image which is from Penny Black and stamped with Stazon, with Inktense and Watercolour pencils and some watercolours, using a water brush.
