Penny Black Saturday ~ First Stamp

I really wanted to play along with the new challenge at Penny Black Saturday but I don't have many stamps, mostly just my newest ones which are a christmas set. It was only when I saw the challenge was to use the very first Penny Black stamp you bought that I went rooting around in my older stamp box and discovered this was a Penny Black! I never knew or at least if I did I forgot!
I still love this stamp, it comes out every now and again and I think this card may end up going to my eldest daughter as she and I go for a Starbucks every time we go shopping. That is the most pleasant time we spend together because the shopping is a nightmare, imagine standing holding lots of heavy bags, in hot shops with loud music blaring while daughter browses and tries on numerous outfits!
I loved the cut off card I made last week so I based this one on that design with the addition of the bow to keep it closed.

Supplies: Tools ~ cuttlebug, nestabilities,
Cardstock ~ white and olive
DP ~ Laura Ashley 'contemporary'
Stamp ~ Penny Black 'Shop til drop'
Embellishments~ Flora Doodle flower, Laura Ashley brad, ribbon from Ribbon Oasis
