Happy Birthday Penny Black!!!























Evening peeps!

I'm making this a fast post tonight as I have some emailing to catch up on and also need to finish writing up tomorrow's Colour Create post.

I'm sure everyone in blogland has seen that Penny Black Challenge are celebrating their first birthday this week and have an amazing set of prizes on offer plus secret candy from everyone on the design team! As the theme is celebration I thought I'd make a card for my friend Sarah's birthday next week. She'll laugh when she sees the card because I borrowed the stamp from her a while back and have now made something with one of the images. In fact it'll probably remind her to start knocking down my door to get the said stamp back, as it's still sitting here in the drawer........ ooooops!

Anyway, I coloured the image with Copics (so quick and easy on this one) and used some citrus papers from Kay & Co. The flowers are Prima and the brads and ribbon are from my stash. As is always the case when I finish a card I felt I needed to add some more to it, so I pulled out a stamp from a 7 Gypsies set I have and stamped the red flowers around the outside........ hmmmmm, less is more definitely went out of the window again on this one, hee hee! BTW, did you know that definitely is supposed to be one of the words most frequently spelt incorrectly in the English language? Hope I got it right!!!!

See you tomorrow then when I'll be back with my Colour Create card.
