Penny Black Sunny Day

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with another from my challenge to myself to use my existing stash with a Penny Black card. I have had these stamps for years but I have always been intimidated by colouring animals for some reason, but now I have challenged myself I am facing this fear head on! :-)
I coloured them with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics, then cut around it with a nestie. I used Bo Bunny papers and used the first paper as a mat for my image. I then made a background with panels of paper on brown and cream card and placed these on my card. I used a Memory Box die as a border cut out of Papermania cardstock, and added American Crafts ribbon to this. Lastly I added three buttons in coordinating colours and a 'Happy Couple' greeting.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenges: A Summer Scene
I love Promarkers: Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter: Layer on Layer
Waste Not Wednesday: Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
Use It Tuesdays: Use that Ribbon
