PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE


The challenge for us this week is 3 flowers, 2 papers, and 1 ribbon......and here is what emerged!

My Christmas card stash is looking quite healthy so i dedided on a Valentine card instead...... for us cardmakers that is the next event that comes around so i thought i would get a head start!

The image is called 'You're A Treasure' and could be used for lots of occasions! I coloured in my normal fashion using ink directly from Distress ink pads using a water brush. The papers are Basic Grey from the 6 x 6 pad 'Urban Prairie' and i've also used a small strip of Bazzill 'just the edge'. The ribbon is Cosmo Cricket, and my 3 flowers were cut from some Doodlebug 'boutique trim' The rub-ons are Cosmo Cricket and were used to hide a wretched smudge that happened as i was assembling my card, and were all i could think of to hide it!....hope it's worked..... ;0)

Family round today as usual for a Sunday......home made chicken pie today! a family favourite.....well apart from Andy who is vegetarian!!! he will be having Chick pea and herb patties........so better get a move on!

Thanks for popping in today, and i hope to see you real soon ;-D
