Sketch Saturday and Penny black Lets get dotty!!

Hi all...
I really don't like doing this but i've had to combine 2 challenges !!!
This is my card for both Sketch Saturday 34...which is a brilliant sketch to work with.....and Penny black Saturday challenge for which the theme is Lets Get Dotty!!

Now I did take the 'dotty' theme rather literally wouldn't you say?? Dots everywhere!!!
My fav bit of this card though, is my Recycled bit... which is a little leather circle tag, which came off my hubbys new shoes...LOL!! had to cover up the bit that says 'leather upper' so i added a punched circle and a spotty brad..LOL!! hubby thinks I mad, going 'I'll have that!!' everytime he goes to throw anything away!!
My adorable Penny black image has been coloured with promarkers and pencils...
Papers are basic grey Offbeat and Archaic
Ribbon ~American crafts
Brad ~making memories
Handwritten sentiment,and some little pearls to finish off....

Thanks for looking..
