Penny Black Uplifting Occasion

I think this stamp "uplifting occasion " is popular with a lot of us, it always make me smile. In the past I've coloured it in with rather bold colours, this time I keep the colours a pale pastel using my pro and flex markers, must say I like this soft look.
The pretty rose papers are do craft , vintage notes, they have a nice linen texture. The rose ribbon  trim is from the Hobby House and the sentiment is craftwork cards.
