Penny Black ATC challenge

I read about the Penny Black ATC challenge over on Denise's blog and decided to play along. You need to make an ATC and upload it to their Flickr Gallery. Well I made the ATC and thought I uploaded it to their gallery, but I don't see it there! LOL I might try again a little later, but I'm clearly Flickr challenged for the time being :)
Anyhoo.........I used this adorable little PB image (thanks Denise) and made the ATC first.
Then I decided to make a card with it, so I used today's SC327 sketch challenge found here.
I used a few scraps of dp from my scrap bin, reversing the stripes on each panel, and embossing them with the square lattice ef. The faux brads were made using the SU owl punch, and a Fiskars circular punch, then coating them with glossy accents.
Happy Tuesday everyone, I wish you all a fabulous day!

Oh my WORRRRD, I love the colorful textured background on both! Awesome card and ATC!!

...I was totally Flickr challenged at first, too. After you upload your project, click on the photo, then in the upper left-hand corner you'll see something that says "Action" with a drop-down arrow. Click on the drop down arrow, go to "Add to Group" and then select Penny Circle. Hopefully that'll work, but if not, send me an email, k?

Your embossing ROCKS!!! Why I don't use that technique more often is beyond me. You are inspiring me.
