PAPERTAKE WEEKLY & PENNY BLACK SATURDAY!

I do love it when i can combine two challenges for one card! The thing is, it also shows how far behind i get as the week progresses! PTW(monday!) have a sketch this week, and PBSC(today!) is to Decorate the inside of your card.My design uses a fab little PB image from the 'Holly Day Critters' acrylic set, and of course Katharina's sketch for the layout.
I always used to decorate the inside of my cards, and still do if they are for an order :) I've kept this one simple, by just using some more of the papers to echo the front of the card, another snowflake brad, and a sweet sentiment!Papers are from Basic Grey 'Offbeat' 6 x 6 pad, which only arrived this morning!! along with the 'pom pom' trim from Bazzill, also in my box of new goodies!
I used my Nesties to cut the scalloped circle, and my Cricut to cut the plain one, onto which i stamped my image and then coloured in using Adirondack and Distress inks.

I have been quite organised today, and i am trying to get a head start on my DT work for next week! :) I have completed my card for Sketches! by Tamara, although you won't see it until Thursday, i have to e-mail it to Tamara by Monday midnight! so sometimes i do have to get my butt in gear! :) here is a sneaky peek for you, and of course the whole design will be revealed on Thursday when the new sketch will also be available for you to play along
if you wish!Rather a long post today as i won't be around tomorrow! Our eldest daughter Chloe, will be 22 on Monday, so we are off to Rayleigh to spend the day with her, have a nice meal etc etc.
Thanks for popping in today, i'll see you soon :)
