For this card I chose three stamps at random for the Penny Black challenge "Sing-a-long" theme.  By chance, all three were Penny Black - so, I guess I met their  criteria without even trying!
The "Music Pattern" was stamped with Distress Inks for the background, and the sentiment, "Happy-happy", is mounted on red CS.  Finally the focal image, "Your Birthday" hedgehog has been colored with Copics, fancy cut, sculpted from the back and then mounted on foam tape to maintain the round and elevated dimension.  Red twine and the large red single note were added to embellish and balance elements on the page.

This card should be eligible for the following
IMAGES:  The focal image is  "Your Birthday", the sentiment is "Happy-happy" and the background is  "Music Pattern", all from  Penny Black; ;  the single music note is from All Night Media.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the focal image;  base CS is from my endless stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS: red twine is from the stash
INKS: The background is "Barn Red" by Ranger's Distress Inks; the sentiment is stamped with black VersaMark; the focal image is stamped with MementoTuxedo Black & colored with Copics:
